m, 





croft Hall to begin a long and tedious 
training period which ended early in June 
°f x 959- It was through the assistance of 
you, the American people, that this costly 
operation was made possible. Now it is 
our turn to repay you. We shall all go our 
separate ways: most to the Fleet, many 
to the Air, some to the Marine Corps and 
a few to the Civil Engineering and Supply 
Corps. Wherever it may be, however, we 
shall all have the same goal: to protect 
and defend the people and possessions of 
the United States. Here then, in the pages 
to follow, is a resume of our years of work 
and times of enjoyment which we shall all 
recall to mind through the years, with 
none but the fondest of memories.

The Chapel is a building whose physical beauty 
approaches that of its high purpose. Always a 
source of inspiration to midshipmen, its dome and 
gold peak were the first part of the Naval Academy 
the young man saw on entering and the last he saw 
as he left, an Ensign, to begin his service in the 
Fleet. Symbolizing his mission is a window of 
stained glass, signifying the Commission Invisible, 
in which the newly-commissioned officer stands 
before Christ, who is pointing toward the Flag of 
the United States. Mass was said here each morn- 
ing and on Sundays the Protestant Service fol- 
lowed at eleven o'clock. The march to Chapel, in 
whose crypt lies the body of John Paul Jones, was 
one of the proudest moments of a midshipman. It 
was in the quiet moments of rest and reflection 
during the Chapel ceremony that he realized the 
magnitude and solemnity of the task he had chosen 
for his life's work. The Chapel became a symbol 
of the highest ideals of the service, a reminder of 
the great responsibility of all under its shadow. It 
was here that the midshipman developed the 
moral fiber so necessary to uphold the traditions 
of courage and valor for which the Naval Service 
is famous.

If you had dared to mention the words "Executive 
Department" to a newly sworn-in Fifty-niner 
during Plebe Summer he would probably have ex- 
hibited little but fear of those he knew only as 
denizens of the Main Office. The same question 
two and a half years later, however, would have 
brought a ready (albeit somewhat strained) re- 
spect for this same department — and the System 
it represents. It wasn't until Second Class year 
that the budding officer first encountered class- 
room Naval Leadership, which presented the the- 
ory behind the military system. Then, during 
First Class year he was briefly introduced to 
"Naval Organization and Leadership" and "Mili- 
tary Law," both necessary adjuncts to the devel- 
opment of a thoroughly versatile junior officer. 




»■■««■ 




seamanship 
navigation 



The most obvious and basic skill required by the 
Naval Officer is that of shiphandling. Our first 
contact came early in Plebe Summer as we learned 
that knot-tying and whale-boat pulling didn't go 
out with the old Navy, nor was the age of sail 
completely dead. We fancied ourselves the tradi- 
tional iron men in wooden ships as we sailed the 
yawls to learn the effects of wind and tide. We re- 
turned to S&N two years later to discover DR 
tracks, three-point fixes, and the wonders of a del- 
ta-D sight form. We ended Second Class year su- 
premely confident and fairly competent navigators, 
and got the chance during First Class cruise to ce- 
ment the flaws in our learning with the mortar of 
experience. The final year instructed us in the fine 
arts of the use of ATP-i, CIC, and the Rules of 
the Road; we became experts at whipping our 
YP's through their paces after many hours afloat. 








It is the mission of the Department of Marine 
Engineering to give to the midshipman the know- 
how to keep his vessel in a condition of complete 
readiness. From the classroom work in engineer- 
ing drawing, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, 
boilers and auxiliary machinery to the laboratories 
with facilities for experimentation in the fields of 
strength of materials, hydrodynamics and steam 
turbines, the midshipman was given a substantial 
background for his work in modern ships of the 
Line. 



marine engineering 





electrical 
engineering 



Throughout our four years at the Naval Academy 
the Department of Electrical Engineering has 
done its best to demonstrate the meaning of the 
phrase "through study and practical instruction." 
The highlights of the course were the labs where 
we were able to put our classroom knowledge to 
practical test. Even though we worked through 
many lab hours to the accompaniment of break- 
ing test tubes in the basement of Maury and the 
popping of circuit breakers and "zapps" of smol- 
dering meters in Griffin, we found at the end of 
four years that we not only had finished the 
course, but also had absorbed a valuable store of 
knowledge in the passing. 




There is little purpose in gaining contact with the 
enemy if the ship cannot deliver the ordnance to 
destroy this enemy. The Department began edu- 
cating the midshipman in the field of ordnance 
and gunnery at the beginning of his Second 
Class year by introducing him to the fundamental 
weapons in use and the basic mechanisms which 
comprise these weapons. From this, the midship- 
man progressed to the theory and practice of fire 
control. During his education, in keeping with 
current developments, more stress was placed on 
guided missiles, aerial, underwater and nuclear 
weapons. 





mathematics 



Mathematics demanded hard work from all of 
us during our first two and one-half years at Navy. 
We were at it five days a week and it seemed as if 
we would never follow all those derivations. But 
whether it was calculus, spherical trigonometry 
or strength of materials, it was all information 
which we were to use many times. In most cases 
we learned its practical application right in the 
classroom, and demonstrated our learning in the 
Math Department's examinations, which were 
universally respected for their comprehensiveness 
and fairness. The Department of Mathematics 
succeeded in presenting us with a basic and in- 
teresting tool for our work and our careers. 



english 
history & 

government 




In our modern and tightly-knit world containing as it 
does wars of propaganda and lies, it is important that 
our military leaders should know the "why" and 
"wherefore" as well as the "how." It was toward this 
important portion of a midshipman's education that the 
curriculum and efforts of the Department of English, 
History and Government were directed. During his 
tour at the Academy the midshipman studied literature, 
history, economics, government and political science. 
The First Class individual research paper was a fitting 
end to the four-year program, for it brought into focus 
all that had been taught before.

It was the task of the Department of Aviation to intro- 
duce us to the fundamentals of aerodynamics and flight, 
in order that we might better understand the acceler- 
ating developments in air warfare. We learned of the 
theory of flight and the application of its basic formulae, 
and gained practical experience in the N3N "Yellow 
Perils." First Class year introduced us to meteorology, 
a fitting end to a course in aviation. 





foreign languages 



The smattering of French or German that had been impressed upon 
us during Plebe year provided a basis for many rewarding relation- 
ships during Youngster cruise, but some of us found the "Dago" 
Department remis in not having established at least a few Scandi- 
navian sections. With our return to USNA as polished world 
travelers, we began the second phase of language study. We re- 
ceived a thorough indoctrination in the culture, history and mores 
of the various countries whence sprang the six languages offered for 
instruction. We progressed to the point where we were capable of 
taking the conn of a Portuguese trawler, Spanish galleon or Siberian 
dog sled. 







physical education 



The high standards maintained by the Department of Physical 
Education became evident to us during Plebe Summer as we received 
a taste of the varied program ahead, and when academic year came 
these standards were to produce physically fit midshipmen. Few 
will forget those agonizing fifteen minutes after the agility test or 
those days spent learning one more gym event. We wrestled in the 
loft and struggled to free ourselves from the Dilbert Dunker, were 
taught flawless swimming techniques and built muscles for applied 
strength. As Second Classmen we found that to stay afloat for forty 
minutes in white works was our big hurdle. 




hygiene 




The Hygiene Department had the dual function 
of teaching hygiene to midshipmen, while at the 
same time caring for their health. Hygiene is the 
only course of instruction required by Congress to 
be taught to midshipmen, and, as all classes before 
us, we became familiar with the fibula, the tibia, 
the medulla oblangata and learned in general the 
principles of hygiene necessary to preserve a 
healthy body. For those who developed an illness 
in spite of all, the Department provided a staff of 
medical officers to relieve the multitudinous aches 
and pains of 3600 men.

Dear Folks, 

At last I am a midshipman, but what a hectic 
day I spent becoming one. All day long we have 
been filling out forms, standing in lines, filling out 
more forms, and standing in more lines. I know 
this is hard to believe, but they even issued us 
eight pairs of shoes at one time. This afternoon 
we were herded into Memorial Hall and raised our 
right hand to take the oath. For most of us the 
sudden realization that we were midshipmen was 
something of a shock, but a shock filled with pride. 
You should have seen our first formation! It was 
really a riot. There was a combination of every 
type shirt, trousers, and shoes you can imagine. 
Some even wore pajamas! It is time for taps, and 
tomorrow looks like another impossible day. Hope 
I find time to write again this summer. 

Love, 
Bob 
P.S. Don't forget the chow. 



at last a midshipman 



I, Samuel Joseph Knox Jr., of the State of Pennsylvania, 



aged 1 8 years, having been appointed a midshipman in the 



United States Navy, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I 



will support and defend the Constitution of the United 



States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I 



will bear true allegiance to the same; that I take this obli- 



gation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose 



of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the 



duties of the office on which I am about to enter; So help 



me God.

plebe year 





Dear Folks, 

Plebe year is underway (I'm really getting to 
sound quite nautical!). I've read about it, heard 
about it, and seen movies about it, but it was still 
impossible to conceive until it became a reality. 
The better part of my day seems to be spent look- 
ing up Plebe questions, bracing up against some 
upperclassman's bulkhead, and getting chewed 
out for some little "unforgivable" error I have 
made. Meals in the messhall are the worst ordeal 
of the day. You would think that I was the only 
person in the messhall besides the upperclass, but 
I'll live through it. They did! 

Love, 
Jim 





Dear Kathy, 

How does it feel to be a freshman in college? I'll 
bet it is a lot different than being a Plebe. Last 
weekend we won our first football game, and as a 
result we got to "carry on" for the rest of the week- 
end. This means that I didn't have to brace up, an- 
swer questions, and all those other nuisances that 
go with being a Plebe. I even slept for a few hours 
on Sunday afternoon for the first time since I have 
been here. Here's hoping we have an undefeated 
season! Things are getting better here as I get 
used to the routine, but I'm still looking forward 
to those two weeks of Christmas leave. See you 
then. 

Love, 
Jerrie 








Dear Ellen, 

Only have a few minutes before Chapel, but I 
don't want to let another day pass without writ- 
ing you concerning a very important occasion. As 
you know the last Saturday in November Navy 
plays Army in football, and believe it or not we, 
the Plebes, can drag to the game ("drag" is our 
word for date). If you can possibly come to Phila- 
delphia, I would like very much to have you as my 
drag. After the game we can go to the Brigade Co- 
tillion. Must get this in the mail. Hope you will 
accept the invitation. 

Love, 
Ron

for fifteen days 



Dear Uncle Bill, 

It seems as though it was 
well before the Army game 
when last I wrote and here 
it is already the end of June 
Week and my first year at 
the Academy. My Christ- 
mas Leave was just perfect 
and I was able to see the 
folks once again. It got so 
for a while that I thought I 
never would. 




. how they flew by 





It was the fastest fifteen 
days I ever spent and alas 
too soon I was engaged in 
the unavoidable finals of the 
first semester. The Dark 
Ages were interrupted only 
by an occasional good Navy 
basketball game. But I got 
through all my exams, 
though the upperclass tell 
me they were the easiest 
ones I shall ever take. 



42 



I couldn't make it home 
for Spring Leave but did 
manage to get to D.C. and 
see one of my old gal 
friends. The weather was 
just terrible though and I 
was almost late returning. 
That would have been all 
I'd have needed to make my 
life as a Plebe infinitely 
tougher. I am going to have 
to start studying a lot hard-

. then came finals 



The last exams of Plebe 
Year weren't too much 
harder than the first. I spent 
an awful lot of time in the 
shower though and got 
caught the last night. How 
I dislike E.D.! I'll probably 
have a bad case of eyestrain 
to start cruise. 




June Week was just fabu- 
lous. The Folks came down 
and we all had a big fling be- 
fore cruise. I went to my 
first hop, the Farewell Ball 
just last night. Well, Sir, to- 
morrow I go on cruise on the 
Iowa. I shall be sure and see 
you when I get back and 
tell you just how much the 
Navy has changed since you 
were a midshipman. 

Sincerely,

Dear Uncle Jim, 

Here we are in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. 
For the last week we have been doing all different 
types of operations. Most of my operations, how- 
ever, have been done with a swab or chipping ham- 
mer in hand. As usual, the day we embarked at 
Annapolis it rained, so we all managed to get on 
board with our gear wet. That didn't bother me 
too much though, for the minute we cast off our 
first line, I got sick and stayed that way for some 
time. At the present time I am standing watches 
in the engineering spaces. Never has there been 
so much equipment crammed into one little place. 
I can't wait until we reach our first port. Just 
think; mail, a long hot shower, a big steak, and all 
those other things I'm dreaming of. Here comes 
the Boatswain's Mate so I had better get to work. 

Sincerely, 
George

Dear Loretta, 

Your letter arrived today and I wanted 
to be sure and answer it right away. Oslo 
is just about the most beautiful place I 
have ever seen. The people are really nice 
and the parks are most interesting. Frog- 
ner Park is on the agenda for today and 
so I am going to end this so I won't miss 
the liberty boat.

Dear Jan, 

People have always told me that Co- 
penhagen is one of the most beautiful 
cities in the world, and now I know they 
were right. I'll never forget Tivoli, Kron- 
berg Castle, the "Little Mermaid" and 
the wonderful Danish people. I have tak- 
en a lot of pictures which I'll show you. 
It is wonderful here, but it sure will be 
nice to get home and see you. 

Love, 
Dave 



Stockholm 

Dear Mother and Dad, 

We have but one more day here in 
Stockholm before we once again set sail 
and I know that if I ever have the oppor- 
tunity to see Europe again in my life, I 
shall come here first. From the people to 
the sights, it is nearly a Paradise. Will be 
writing you a longer letter from London. 

Love, 
Tom 






Hamburg 

Dear Uncle Pete, 

Thank you for the ten dollars. It 
sure will help in the liberty days 
ahead in Hamburg. Germany cer- 
tainly has changed since the war as 
far as I can compare after having 
read my textbooks carefully last 
year. They have some of the most 
beautiful churches I have ever seen. 
Love, 
Dave 






london 

Dear Folks, 

Yesterday I arrived in London 
after spending another week at sea. 
They certainly were right about 
"foggy London Town." We have 
not seen the sun since we have been 
here. Besides the regular sightsee- 
ing, I have tickets to several of the 
better plays; tonight we are going 
to see "Kismet." We are having a 
ball, but every day I think more and 
more about that sign over our kitch- 
en sink, "Home Sweet Home." See 
you in August. 

Love, 
Mike

Dear Mother and Dad, 

In three more days I'll be home. Sunday afternoon 
we arrived here in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for our last 
bit of training before calling it "a summer." Since then 
we have spent most of our time firing the big guns at 
practice targets. My ears are still ringing from yester- 
day's gunfiring. It hasn't been all work, however. Dur- 
ing our free time we have been swimming, sunning, 
eating, and spending our money. Yesterday I had my 
first hamburger since we left the States in June. It 
really was a treat. If I can stand another day of blazing 
heat and deafening gunfire, I'll see you in front of Luce 
Hall Saturday morning. Make sure to get the car 
washed and the tank filled. 

Love, 
Pete

Dear Sally, 

Back once again at good old USNA, I tat 
pen in hand once again to thank you for th 
fectly wonderful times we had together this su 
mer. You certainly made a wonderful leave even 
better for me. It sure feels good to be wearing the 
lone stripe of a full-fledged Youngster. Now I'll 
actually be able to drag you some weekend and 
on liberty Saturday evenings and Sunday 
noons. The best of it all is that I can just^i 
and watch the new Plebes get run without having 
to worry about running the gauntlet myself. I'll 
be writing you again very soon arid let you know 
about the big weekend coming up called Alumni 
Weekend. Be sure to write and send some of your 
cookies too.

Dear Norman, 

Another summer has started. At the present 
time we are at Little Creek, Virginia "playing ma- 
rine". The official title of it is Tramid and after a 
little thought I have finally found out that it is an 
abbreviation meaning "training of midshipmen". 
We are living in quonset huts and have all of our 
belongings in a locker about the size of a big shoe- 
box. Most of our time has been spent listening to 
lectures, and then going out to practice what we 
have learned. Next week we are going out to sea 
in LST's to make a real landing. If all goes well 
I'll see you about the first of August. 

Sincerely, 
Tom

Dear Kath, 

At last I'm learning something about what it 
takes to become a pilot. When we first arrived here 
we spent three days being indoctrinated, but now 
we are flying every day. Yesterday my instructor 
let me do some acrobatics — loops, wingovers, rolls, 
and anything else that I could do. Tomorrow I get 
my first jet ride. That should prove exciting. The 
beach here is really tops, and since we have every 
late afternoon, and weekend free, I am catching 
up on my suntan and swimming. Shine up the wa- 
ter skis for I'll soon be home. 

Love, 
Ken

Dear Uncle Roy and Aunt Bessie, 
Here we are back at sea after that 
wonderful weekend in New York 
City. I want to thank you again for 
putting me up for the weekend. This 
afternoon I am going to be catapult- 
ed in a S2F. Since I've heard so 
much about the odd feeling that ac- 
companies this, I'm really looking 
forward to it. Yesterday I went up 
in an AD and had quite a ride. The 
pilot was determined to get me sick, 
but thank goodness he failed. It is 
almost time for dinner, so thanks 
again. 

Love, 

Bob

Dear Mom and Dad, 

This is by far the worst year for the studies and I have 
been so snowed under lately that I wonder how I shall 
ever get through. I have decided that I am going to take 
it easy for a few weeks though. Ring try-ons were really 
quite a thrill and mine is really a beauty. I can hardly 
wait until I get it next June. President Eisenhower will 
be here for the 150 pound Army-Navy football game 
next week, so I shall have a look at the biggest "wheel" 
I have ever seen. I'm also learning how to play bridge. 
After a few weeks of calling the singleton the simpleton 
and bidding 3 spades when holding only the deuce and 
causing my wives much anxiety, I am finally getting 
the knack of the game. I shall sign off for now with a 
promise to write again soon. 

Love,

Dear Betty, 

I'm sorry I didn't get to write to you before 
this, and the only excuse I can offer is that Second 
Class academics have been keeping me pretty 
busy. I had a few days vacation this past week, 
though, when I made my exchange trip to West 
Point. The Second Class do this each year so they 
can learn a little about what life is like up there 
on the Hudson. My group of about eighty mids 
left last Thursday noon and we got back to the 
Naval Academy Sunday evening, so we had two 
full days up there. Friday morning was quite a 
shock. Reveille went at 0600, but instead of just 
getting up we had to get up, get dressed, and fall 
in outside for muster. Saturday morning was 
worse yet, because when we got outside we found 
six inches of snow on the ground. It sure woke me 
up, but I guess I could get used to it if I had to 
do it all the time. Each one of us had a Cadet host 
to guide us around. We lived in his room and went 
to classes with him for a day and a half. Saturday 
afternoon we watched Army compete in a variety 
of sporting events, and for the first, and probably 
the last time, we cheered for Army. The whole trip 
was very enjoyable for me and I came back with a 
different opinion of West Point, but I was very 
glad to get back to Annapolis and thaw out. Now 
I'd better get to work and catch up on the studies 
I've missed. I'll try to write again soon. 

Love, 
Steve

Dear Aunt Dorothy, 

I received your letter today, and decided I'd 
better answer it immediately as I leave on cruise 
tomorrow. It won't be a long one, because I have 
a lot to do. This has been a very hectic week, but 
one of the most enjoyable of my life. As you've 
heard me say, the highlight of Second Class June 
Week is the Ring Dance. This never meant much 
to me until I ordered my ring last September and 
I looked forward to it with mounting enthusiasm 
ever since then. In the middle of April our rings 
finally arrived, but there was one catch — we 
couldn't wear them until the night of the Ring 
Dance. Of course, many a study hour was spent 
gazing at that ring on my finger, but I couldn't be 




caught. Last Saturday the big night arrived. It 
couldn't have been a more beautiful evening if it 
had been planned. Warren Covington's Orchestra 
was at its best and time swiftly moved along to- 
ward the magic 2300 hours when each mid's drag 
placed his ring on his finger. Now, as I get ready 
to leave, it seems as if it was all a dream and 
couldn't really have happened, but, as I look at 
it in front of me, I come back to reality. Time is 
getting short now, so I'd better close. 

Love, 
Fred

RING DANCE 






III! Bit 



/ 



first class cruise 



Dear Jack, 

Here I am almost on my way home from cruise 
and I'm just getting around to writing to you, as 
I promised to do when I left. When I told you I 
would be a junior officer on this cruise, I really 
didn't think I would fill that billet as much as I 
did. It took us two weeks to come over to the Med 
and during that time I stood quite a few bridge 
watches on my destroyer. Quite often I was given 
the conn at the start of my watch and I kept it for 
the whole four hours. Of course, at night it was 
mostly station keeping, which isn't hard once you 
get the knack of it, but during the day we did a 
lot of maneuvering and I picked up a lot of expe- 
rience that will be valuable to me after I graduate. 
After we got to the Med, some of us changed ships 
for the remainder of cruise. I was one of those who 
transfered to the U.S.S. Essex, so I've learned a 
lot about carrier operations in the last month. 
This is the first big ship I've been on. It has many 
advantages over a destroyer, but there's some- 
thing about a destroyer that I like. The weather 
over here in the Med has been terrific — we haven't 
seen a drop of rain yet. Of course, this has made 
liberty very enjoyable — what there has been of it. 
I guess mids never get enough liberty. While on 
my destroyer coming over here we stopped for one 
day of liberty in Villefranche, France, and since 
coming aboard the Essex I've spent a week in 
Athens, Greece and a week in Rhodes, Greece. 
Some of the mids on other ships have spent a lot 
of time in such places as Cannes, France, and Na- 
ples, Italy, but we weren't that lucky. The Essex 
was scheduled to spend 16 days in Cannes, but 
when the situation began to get warm over here 
in the Middle East, that was cancelled. I guess 
you've been reading about Lebanon in the news- 
papers back home, so you may know that the Es- 
sex was one of the first ships to be on the scene. We 
were in Athens when the crisis began, but we 
pulled up anchor at 0400 and we've been here ever 
since. The Essex hasn't gotten very close to the 
coast of Lebanon, but some of the ships with mids 
on them went in to cover the landing of troops, 
so we can now say that we're the first midshipmen 
in history to take part in an amphibious invasion. 
With all this excitement we were a little worried 
about getting home for awhile. We knew there 
wouldn't be any destroyers to take us back as orig- 
inally scheduled, so we were mighty glad to hear 
yesterday that we are to be flown back. No one 
knows exactly when we'll leave, but we're all hop- 
ing it will be soon. Too many plans have been 
made for those thirty days of summer leave! I'll 
look you up when I get back. Say hello to the folks 
for me.

Dear Phil, 

Cruise Xray started out as a typical midship- 
man cruise. I, along with many of my classmates, 
was disgruntled at the thought of having Third 
Classmen along, but there was a surprise in store — 
we shared staterooms with the officers on our 
ships. This cruise put the First Class in junior of- 
ficer billets, and we went right to work. Many of 
us found that the Navy is a lot different from what 
we know at the Academy. I didn't know there was 
so much paper work in the Navy, but we learned 
a lot and it was nice to feel that we were part of 
the ship. Of course, I must mention the liberty 
ports. Portugal was our first stop. From there some 
of us went to England; others to Scotland, Den- 
mark, Sweden, Spain, and Germany. A few fortu- 
nate mids were able to spend five glorious days vis- 
iting the World's Fair in Brussels. This was the 
highlight of the cruise for me, as I was able to see 
the rest of the world pass in review for a change. 
As much fun as we had on cruise, there was no hap- 
pier moment than when we saw the lights of Nor- 
folk. We were all anxious to get home and tell of 
our wonderful experiences. I hope I'll get a chance 
to show you my pictures.

first class year 



Dear Hank, a 

It doesn't seem like long ago that I came back fr 
Christmas Leave to face finals and then that First 
Class term paper which most of us left until tn§J4a.st 
minute. Finals were bad enough, but I spent more 
time working after taps on my term paper than I ever 
have for finals. They're both out of the way now, 
though, and the end of my four years here on the banks 
of the Severn is beginning to look mighty close at hand. 
I guess about this time all First Classmen begin to look 
forward to graduation with mixed emotions. Don't get 
me wrong, I'm looking forward to graduation, but I 
think I can now realize what these four years will 
mean to me after I've left. It has been a long pull and 
I've been pretty discouraged on many occasions, but 
I know I'll never regret that decision I made four years 
ago. As you know, I'm also looking forward to getting 
married shortly after graduation. Not all of my class- 
mates share my feelings about marriage at this time, 
either because they feel they're not ready for it or be- 
cause they just don't want it yet. However, those of 
us who are going to take the big step are looking forward 
to graduation with a little added enthusiasm. It seems 
as if everyone who isn't getting married is going to buy 
a car, and there are some who plan on both. Anyway, 
it's pretty tough to get near the bulletin board with the 
price lists on it these days. Those new models all look 
good, especially to us who have not done too much 
driving in the past few years. Well, if I'm going to grad- 
uate I'd better get down to work. Give my best to your 
parents. 

Dave

Dear Mom and Dad, 

Now that I have successfully passed my commis- 
sioning physical we have been notified of our preference 
numbers. I drew 698, so my chances of getting Newport 
or Philadelphia are pretty slim. It looks like Norfolk 
and a can if I'm lucky or if I am unlucky I might even 
get an oiler out of Dutch Harbor for three years. But 
that is the law of the jungle and so I must take a not- 
so-good duty station for a few years. At any rate grad- 
uation is not too far off. Our leave has been cut down to 
thirty days, it has always been sixty, so many of my 
classmates will have to cut their honeymoons short. 
Will be seeing you at Christmastime and maybe four 
days early if I can get on Operation Information. 

Love, 
Pete

Bill, a true Southern Gentleman, left his Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity brothers at 
Birmingham Southern and journeyed to the banks of the Severn to accept a new life 
and new brothers. Even though he despises cold weather, he fought the cold and the 
Severn to win a place on the varsity dinghy team. Bill is an easy going fellow who al- 
ways had a cheerful smile and "hello" for everyone and will be remembered by all who 
knew him as the fellow who couldn't be awakened by an atomic explosion.

Bill came to us from everywhere. He was born in Huntsville, Alabama, recently lived 
in Kansas and now resides in New York. Yet through all this moving around he still 
remains a rebel at heart. His fun loving nature made him a welcome addition to any 
gathering. His greatest pursuit while at Canoe U was by Farragut Field through 
Thompson Stadium by the Field House and over the wall. His interest in this subject 
was only stopped by his disinterest in mustering every half hour at the Main Office. 
He was nicknamed "Charlie Brown" by his classmates because of his outstandingly 
round head and his expert knack for always doing the wrong thing at the right time. 
He will be remembered as the friendly rebel who always had a big smile and a cheerful 
"hey" for everyone he saw.

Wayne came to us via NAPS and shucked a set of Marine greens to don the Blue and 
Gold, but always insisted that he was merely TAD for four years. If there is anything 
he is fonder of than the Corps, it must be that beautiful farm he calls home in Alabama. 
The course of instruction never gave Wayne much trouble except when he tried to 
study and that usually finished him because he couldn't get his twelve hours sleep per 
day. His pride and joy was a hi-fi set that he built and we will all remember the window 
shattering sounds it occasionally emitted. Wherever he may go, you may be sure of two 
things, he'll be gung-ho and he'll never let you down.

Johnny was known as the life of the party, a sympathetic friend and an outstanding 
leader in his company. He is gifted with an alert mind that enabled him to stand high 
in his class. His athletic prowess was exhibited as a Plebe football and baseball player 
and later as a member of the varsity baseball and soccer teams. Socially, Johnny is 
refreshing and his vivacious personality and captivating conversation convey a feeling 
of ease to all in his presence. His ability to win friends could be seen in the fact that he 
was vice-President of his Class. Johnny's qualities will surely continue to command 
high regard throughout his career in the Fleet. 





WILLIAM I. MILWEE

The state of Alabama takes credit for contributing this young Southern Gentleman to 
the Navy and we are very happy that he was one of us. His good nature and ready 
smile won him many friends while his natural abilities carried him through the Academy 
with an ease that many of us have envied. Ever faithful, Bill confined his dragging to 
June Week when that certain someone would come all the way from Alabama to take 
him up to a little pink cloud. Everything about the Navy seems to interest Bill and we 
are convinced that the Fleet is getting a fine officer. 







WILLIAM T. POSEY 

Eleventh Company 
Haley ville 

Bill came to us from the "heart of Dixie," after spending three years at the University 
of Alabama. His friendly smile and jolly laugh were known throughout the Brigade. 
Bill's afternoons were spent supporting company and battalion sports at which he had 
no equal. On Sundays his voice resounded throughout the Chapel. His membership in 
the Chapel Choir is evidence of his love of good music. His lore for good times was also 
well known and he should be a welcome addition wherever our air arm needs him. 



Chuck is another mid from the deep South hailing from Andalusia, Alabama. He spent 
a year at Auburn before moving on to USNA. He was a mainstay on Navy's 150 
pound football team for three years as a halfback. This popular reb's favorite saying 
was, "I got to do some studying," as he started reading a western, his favorite pastime. 
Being cool and steady under fire, he is a sure bet to make good out in the Fleet.

Dick came to "Navy Tech" via the reserves. A member of the old Navy, he acclimated 
rapidly to the challenging new environment but, for some reason, couldn't explain his 
hours of accumulated E.D. In his spare time he found himself playing lacrosse, a game 
which he avidly pursued. His other interests ran to weight lifting, dragging and sleep- 
ing. Dick was a constant source of amusement to his classmates with his imitations. 
He could often be found in someone else's room showing his "latest bit." A long to be 
remembered classmate, Dick will spend considerable time in the Navy Line.

"Rod" was the ball of fire that sparked the Brigade Activities Committee for four years. 
It was his enthusiasm and originality that helped the BAC bring out the spirit in the 
Brigade. Hailing from Alaska, John probably knew more about the Civil War than 
anyone else here. Although he took his academics lightly, he still managed to exhibit 
a very high intelligence. He was a fun-loving guy who was always ready with a joke. 
In spite of regulations and academics, he always managed to have a good time. His 
ability and good nature are sure to combine to make a successful career. 



Vern, a Navy Junior, spent two years in college before "matriculating" at Navy 
Tech. As for most of us, academics came hard for him but his diligence and hard-work- 
ing attitude were the factors of survival. He found time to make a minor of such extra- 
curricular activities as company Log and Splinter representative, company representa- 
tive, the Plebe swimming team, Brigade boxing and the 150 pound crew team. By 
virtue of his congenial manner and well-rounded personality, this lad charmed many a 
a likely lass. Well-liked by all, Vern's conscientiousness and determined optimism are 
indicative of a highly successful career.

John came directly to the Naval Academy from high school in Phoenix, but spent most 
of his time counting the days until he could return to California. John was a confirmed 
bachelor while at the Academy, although he certainly didn't have anything against the 
fairer sex. While others were dragging he could usually be found in the Model Club 
Room working on some new project. His main interests were boating and water skiing, 
but, since the Navy does not offer much along this line, he had to content himself to re- 
living the last summer and looking forward to the next.

"Where is the Grand Canyon, mister?" This is the stock Plebe question of Gene Mor- 
gan, the greatest booster the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce has ever encountered 
outside of its payroll. "Morgy" entered the Academy directly from North Phoenix 
High School and, despite being one of the younger members of the class, consistently 
starred or came very close even though he spent most of his study hours holding extra 
instruction for classmates. Never a member of the "radiator squad," he displayed his 
physical prowess at company volleyball, fieldball and especially basketball where his 
driving desire was to be the first 5 '9" man to "dunk." The Navy is receiving a truly 
fine gentleman and officer as his many friends from the Academy will testify. 



Denny is quite a fellow, well known and well liked by his classmates. Not as large in 
size as he is large in spirit, he was one of our smaller men who play the rougher sports. 
Company football and soccer were among his sports. As a golf enthusiast, he could 
usually be found on the course five afternoons a week during the season. Dennis plans 
to increase the population of Navy Line.

Mike was one of the few at the Academy who is an Army Brat. His father and brother 
are both West Point graduates and Army-Navy game bets were always kept in the 
family. Considerate and willing to help his friends and classmates, he spoke his mind 
with frankness. He showed a desire to see things done right and often drove himself to 
see that they were done so. Having lived in Honolulu, he likes swimming and water 
polo and the water in general. He worked on WRNV and also sailed in the Academy 
yawls. A capable and hardworking individual, he hopes to make a career as a sub- 
mariner.

After two and a half years of college and two attempts to get in USNA, Charlie finally 
made it. From the hills of Arkansas he brought his soft Southern drawl and easy-going 
way to "Yankee-land." Academics weren't among his favorite pastimes, for he much 
preferred to answer his daily letter from a lovely young Southern belle. Charlie al- 
ways managed to squeeze by. An "old man" with a "baby face," he was always willing 
to help a. classmate. If his passion for neatness is as great at Pensacola as it was here, 
Charlie should be able to handle any situation that arises.

Larry is a person of friendly and pleasant personality. He attended Arkansas State 
University for one semester and the University of Arkansas for a year before entering 
the Naval Academy. After his arrival he began boxing and, as a Plebe, reached the 
semi-finals in Brigade boxing. He was an active participant in company sports during 
the other seasons. He plans to make a career of the Navy.

Soon after graduation from high school, Bob joined the ranks of the Brigade. His 
favorite subjects here at the Academy were Dago and Bull. He always had a liking 
for Western folklore and humorous poetry. His impromptu recitations were often a 
source of delight to his classmates. Bob plans to put in thirty years in Navy Line after 
which he would like to retire to the seclusion of the Red River Valley. 



JAMES E. GRISE 

Ninth Company 
Little Rock 

Jimmy, who came to us from the land of the boll weevil, was well-prepared for Navy 
Tech, having endured a year at Hendrix College in Conway. "Greasy" was the appeal 
of many young ladies, while good banjo music was one of his favorite pastimes. Jim 
was the star of both the cross-country and steeplechase teams for four years and en- 
joyed every minute of it — ugh!!! But when running, as well as when playing his 
favorite sport of water polo, he always lived up to his motto in life, "Pull Ahead." 





Wayne came from the ranks of the NROTC unit of Ole Miss to join his cousins by the 
Severn. He quickly proved that he was no "Rotsie" at heart and immediately became a 
lively and well-liked member of his class and company. After two years as varsity 
crew coxswain, Wayne turned to cheerleading and through two fine seasons tried to 
transfer his over abundant spirit to the Brigade. Always noted for his well spit-shined 
shoes and taut cap covers, he is obviously Gyrene material. Wayne's cheerful attitude 
and ready smile will be remembered long after graduation by all who know him.

Hailing from the sunny southland, Mick came to USNA after spending a year at 
Bullis Prep. His enthusiasm for professional questions and the Pepsodent smile he had 
waiting for the upper class brought him many days of rain during Plebe year. Young- 
ster year gave Mick more time to pursue his favorite pastimes of wrestling, writing 
letters and giving people his profound thoughts on life. Anyone who was lucky enough 
to room with him assured himself of a year of free education and entertainment by just 
listening to the ideas that emerged from his superior mind. Mick will always be warmly 
remembered by everyone for his pleasant and easy-going personality. 





JAMES A. SMITH, JR.

Little Rock 

Jimmie, one of Arkansas' best travelers, saw his first pair of shoes after leaving 
Little Rock Central High School for Annapolis. There was never a dull moment when 
Smitty was around. If you couldn't understand his drawl, he would gladly translate it 
into Spanish for you. His bright, red face and cheerful smile added to any occasion. 
Jim, never having any trouble with academics or insomnia, was the only man in the 
Brigade who never heard the reveille bell. As a Plebe he was Reef Points' chief typist. 
Youngster year he became associate editor and then editor Second Class year. 



89 



Plebe year saw Rog on the starting five of the Plebe basketball team and a top con- 
tender on the Plebe crew team. A hard working "savvy," Rog had an aptitude for as- 
similating enough knowledge to enable him to wear stars. His endeavors in the academic 
field were interrupted quite frequently on those dragging weekends by the appearance 
of many lovely, little ladies from Maine to Florida. Besides being elected to the Class 
Ring Committee, Rog held the position of Lucky Bag Representative. His ever- 
present ambition and determination will undoubtedly attain for him his desired goals.

Before entering the Academy, Tom had already established a fine record at UCLA. He 
was a member of the NROTC unit and the Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity. He also 
participated in crew which gave him the needed experience to secure a seat in the Navy 
varsity shell. He was noted for his excellent files and bookkeeping. The absence of 
even a pencil from his desk led to a thorough investigation which usually tracked down 
the culprit. Every weekend since Christmas of Youngster year Tom could be found 
contemplating the future. If past performance has any bearing on future outcomes, he 
will surely reach the top as an officer.

Charley came to us after one year at Hartnell College. Although fairly good academ- 
ically, he could not quite achieve that golden 3.4 average, in spite of four years of hard 
work. During the winter months, Charley was most likely to be found in the Natato- 
rium working with the swimming team. In the spring he usually found time for water 
polo or track. Charley hopes to go into the submarine service when he graduates, and 
will surely be an asset to the underwater Navy. 





GEORGE E. BRAINERD 

First Company 
Santa Clara 

George, a Navy Junior, came to USNA as an experienced high school politician and a 
seasoned wrestler. He had a very well-rounded four years at the Academy, both as an 
exceptional athlete and an active participant in class activities. Following in the foot- 
steps of his two brothers who graduated before him, George was a great asset to the 
varsity wrestling team. His popularity with his classmates was shown by his election to 
various class offices. An avid dragger, George always believed that the best way to pre- 
pare for a Monday p-work was to drag on Sunday. A "gung-ho" Navy man, George 
has a very bright career ahead of him.

Bill came to us from Los Angeles where he attended Loyola University. There he was 
active in the AFROTC and track. Bill always had a desire to attend the Academy and 
after a few minor difficulties the first year, soon took life here in stride. Bill is known 
for his quick wit and ready smile which made him an asset to any organization to 
which he belonged. Here at Canoe U Bill took an interest in the physical fitness pro- 
gram, helping to round out his already interesting personality.

Jim arrived at the Naval Academy with the enthusiasm and determination to become 
a Naval officer. These characteristics were devoted not only to study and practical 
instruction but also to extracurricular activities and intramural sports. He contributed 
much to the Concert Band and could be seen making points for the Fifth Battalion 
gym team. During the winter he was always among the first to finish in company cross 
country. Jim's only weakness was tinkering with his hifi set. He holds the record for 
blowing out more fuses than anyone in the fourth wing. His enthusiasm and readiness 
to get a job done will be missed at Annapolis, but will be a great asset for his career in 
the Navy. 



RALPH W. CHRISTY

Ralph attended Whittier College as a pre-law major for one year before entering the 
Academy. On leaves you would have to go up in the California mountains by some good 
fishing hole to find him. As Third Class Hop Committee Chairman he was instrumental 
in producing two successful Youngster Hops. Ralph served on the Fourth Class Detail 
during Second Class Summer and became well known throughout '61. Upon graduation 
Ralph will enter the Line Navy with aspirations to one day join the "Silent Service."

A typical Californian, characterized by his love of fast cars and women, Joe found it 
trying at times to effect the change from civilian to military life. Despite his affinity for 
the former, Joe left his mark at Navy. Consistently at the top of his class academically, 
he was often probed to be the saviour of a classmate struggling for academic life. For- 
saking crew after winning his Plebe numeral, Joe became a man of leisure as an upper 
classman. Directing his athletic abilities toward intramural sports, he was always the 
spark plug of the team. His affable nature, willingness to go out of the way to help 
others, and his "life of the party" antics will long be remembered.

A truck driver from Los Angeles, Tom couldn't lose his motion at the Naval Academy. 
His speed on the Plebe track and crew teams was well known and no grass grew under 
him socially either. His talents extended to the literary also, as he was circulation 
manager of the Trident. His dark and quiet 6 '4" frame drew ladies whose personali- 
ties unbelievably matched their beauty. The same sincerity and droll humor which 
attracted them assures Tom a successful career with Navy Air. 

Jim, a Californian from the word "go," continually stood by his ideals, which won him 
innumerable friends. His classmates will always remember him for his valuable help in 
Skinny, Steam and other courses. Jim was active in company cross country and bat- 
talion track, and was also on the Plebe crew team. An authority on subs, Jim is nat- 
urally going to seek his dolphins after graduation. He was an asset to the Brigade and 
to his class, both in his moral support and academic work, starring during all his years 
at the Academy.

Mr. Petesy can not really call anywhere home, as he came from a Navy family. During 
annual leave, however, he was known to hang his cap in Philadelphia. Being the liberal 
arts fan that he is, Pete was not able to agree with another famous Philadelphian, Ben 
Franklin, on the subject of electricity. His talent spread to other fields, however, for 
which his wives can vouch. He earned them "carry on" many times Plebe year with 
his deft touch of brush on poster-paper. Although he received his nickname from a 
Southern Belle, he will be remembered more vividly for his impartial eye for any young 
lovely who came his way.

Bob came to USNA in 1953 by way of Pomona College. After Youngster year he took 
another fling at civilian life — at UCLA. He then worked as a technical aide for Con- 
solidated Electrodynamics Corporation before returning to Annapolis in 1956. He 
was active in the realm of water sports, having made two ocean sailing races and in- 
numerable yawl free-for-alls. His extra-extra-curricular activities also have been 
famous, being noted even by the Commandant. He plans a career in Navy Line, 
specializing in special weapons and instrumentation, if possible. He will undoubtably 
provide the Navy with another able member of the "cold, hard core."

Carm el -by -the -Sea 

A Navy Junior, claiming Carmel as his home, Lee is as interesting as the many places 
in which he has lived. His genuine friendliness will make him long remembered by all 
who know him. Entering immediately after high school, he picked up and followed the 
curriculum of Canoe U with unsurpassed ease. Much of his free time was spent working 
as varsity soccer manager and with the Public Relations Club. A true engineer, Lee's 
favorite hobby is "the hi-fi" which is his pride and joy. 

Originally from the Hawaiian Islands, Dag came to the silver shores of the Severn after 
serving two years in the USMC. A dazzling pigskin carrier, it was not very long before 
he won the reputation as "Navy's scampering little fullback." His modesty, radiant 
personality, quick wittedness and broad smile, combined with his talent on the grid- 
iron, landed him the job of captain of Navy's outstanding football team. A great guy 
both on and off the field, Dick's next touchdown may very well be made in a Navy jet.

After soaking up the California sunshine for some eighteen years, one of which was 
spent at the College of Sequoias, Dick decided to come to the Naval Academy. Here 
his congenial manner and quick smile made him popular with everyone. Studies never 
caused Dick to lose any sleep and he spent most of his time on the courts and fields and 
showed he was a versatile athlete. His musical talents were put to good use in the Glee 
Club and he often relaxed by playing the piano in Mem Hall while his smooth west 
coast "bop" found its place at many parties from Florida to New York City. The sys- 
tem was the only thing Dick could not beat.

Denny came to the Naval Academy after spending a year in pre-med school at the 
College of Marin and two years in the Naval Reserve, striking for hospital man. Denny 
was always active in sports and rowed on both the Plebe and varsity crew teams. After 
his Plebe year, Denny came to the conclusion that "it's all relative," a philosophy his 
classmates soon picked up. While at the Academy, Denny amazed his many friends 
with his sharp wit, a trait which we all learned to respect, which should aid him 
through his career.

John hails from the "land of milk and honey," as he calls it, where he started his 
track career which he followed up on Navy's varsity team. He was noted for his drag- 
ging prowess which he attributed to those tender and fleet feet. He managed, with lit- 
tle trouble, to get on the Superintendent's List from year to year. His mind may be 
sharp although the same cannot be said of his eyes. Though he takes with him a new 
pair of glasses, John is bound to go far in his Naval career for he has proved that those 
who work go far, and he is a worker. 

A true Navy Junior, Bill has lived all over the world. Upon entering the Academy he 
found he had quite a bit of success with the books. Boxing and tennis were his favorite 
sports. Somehow, to top all his sports activities, he became a bridge addict. After 
graduation Bill plans to make his home in the Navy. Wherever he goes, his associates 
will find that they can depend on him at anytime.

Dick came to USNA from Long Beach Junior College to follow in the footsteps of his 
two older brothers. He began to learn the ways of the sea in the dinghys, but soon ad- 
vanced to cruising the upper Severn in a shell. Youngster year found him on the yawls 
preparing for the Annapolis-Newport Ocean Race and during Second Class year he ad- 
vanced to the Royono and the Bermuda race. When the boats were on the beach he 
could be found with the fieldball team or in Mahan Hall making signs for the Juice 
Gang. To put his talents to further use he was photographic manager of the Lucky 
Bag. Perhaps in Navy Air he'll be one of those strip-map men we heard so much about 
Second Class summer.

Small in size but big in spirit exemplifies Rog. After a brief hitch in the USMC, Rog 
came to Navy via NAPS. It took him four years to find out that Skinny didn't neces- 
sarily mean thin, but with a touch of that "Erickson Luck" he came out with no strain. 
Sports and his OAO took up his spare time, and his performances on the 150 pound 
football, Brigade boxing and company softball teams revealed his versatility. After 
graduation Rog will be heading to Quantico and a thirty year tour in the Marines.

Lou was born in the hills of Arkansas and moved to California at the tender age of two. 
Since that time Lou has been devoted to his new state, and will give any Texan a good 
argument. His ability and aggressiveness have enabled him to play baseball while here 
at Navy. Academics were never one of his big worries. Lou plans to fly after graduation, 
and his warm personality and ability to make friends will carry him far in his chosen 
career. 



Tiger was summoned to the Academy from the University of California where he was 
a pre-vet medicine student. During Plebe summer, he easily made friends and accumu- 
lated quite a group of admirers as he won the light heavyweight boxing championship. 
He solved the problems of Plebe year rapidly and developed into one of the Second 
Company's most outstanding members. His drive, stamina, and good sportsmanship 
made him an excellent athlete. He was a good team mate as well as a conscientious 
leader and his hard work should carry him far in the Fleet.

Dave came to the Academy by way of San Francisco City College, where he spent two 
years. These two years of college seem" to have helped because Dave stood number 
two in academics during Plebe year and number twenty-six Youngster year. With 
Dave, however, academics came right behind sports. In the fall he played Plebe soccer 
then shifted to company soccer for his last three years. Winter found him on the com- 
pany 150 pound gridiron. Dave expended his extracurricular energy in the German 
Club and WRNV. At the close of his Academy days Dave plans to wear Navy blue 
and gold as a brand new Ensign. 




96 



Being an "Army Brat" did not affect Dave's love of the sea and the Navy. A heap of 
sweat gear and a pile of texts were Dave's symbols of Canoe U. He always put his all 
into the academics as well as athletics. Weekends were truly Dave's time off, and he 
secured from everything and turned on the social life in full blast. He was one of the 
all time greats in the field of dragging, for it was rarely the same girl twice. Popular 
music and the current flicks in town were of prime importance during his years. Dave 
will be a great asset to the Navy, and likewise the Navy will be foremost for Dave.

Mike came to the Academy just after completing his submarine qualifications aboard 
the USS Sirago. That was the beginning of his training to follow in the footsteps of his 
father and grandfather who both served in the Silent Service. He, like so many others, 
did not find the academics a pushover. But his perseverence and study won the ad- 
miration of many of his classmates. Finding a young lady never created a problem for 
Mike and many had the pleasure of his company on a weekend. Mike is a sure thing 
for the continuation of a powerful Submarine Fleet. 



San Diego is claimed by Bill as his home but he has hung his hat in many parts of the 
world as a member of that elite group known as Navy Juniors. After graduating from 
high school in the Panama Canal Zone, the accordion-playing lad came directly to the 
Academy and took up residence in the Tenth Company. During his four years Bill was 
most active in company soccer and fieldball although he did manage to become quite 
water-logged Youngster year on the battalion swimming team. The old adage of "Navy 
Line is mighty fine" appeals to Bill and he plans to join this branch of the Navy upon 
graduation.

Tom was well on his way to a college degree before entering USNA, but he gave it up 
willingly to assume his role as a midshipman and thus launch his naval career. Being 
somewhat older than most of his classmates, he adapted to the rigors of Plebe year 
quickly and with little trouble. During Youngster year Tom's interest turned to soc- 
cer, and he served capably as manager for three years. Tom's interest in Navy Air 
soon manifested itself and he assumed the job of Vice-Chairman of the Aeronautical 
Engineering Club. Wherever this lanky Californian may go, he will always be a credit 
to the Navy.

Hilde is one of the academic whizzes from sunny California who added much to the

His intense interest in things of a professional nature was of great benefit to him at 
Navy and should continue to be of value in his future military career. A man of keen 
abilities and a sincere desire for the service, Hilde will prove a valuable and competent 
officer.

Buzz had a great deal of interest in many fields and his constant supply of up to date 
information on daily happenings never ceased to amaze his friends. An ardent sports 
fan, he was in great demand to lead the company basketball team and provided that 
body with a great deal of cohesion and spirit. As a seasoned traveler, he thought noth- 
ing of taking weekends in California and was invaluable as Polly's Bancroft Representa- 
tive. His ability and personality should take him to great heights. 

Born in Columbus, Georgia, our boy George saw much of the world with his father's 
Army career. It wa c c^ly after a year of pre-law at Monterey Peninsular College, and 
another year in the Navy, that he became a midshipman. While here on the Severn he 
became well known for his ability at writing opinions on such things as the Stag Line. 
He also tried his hand at short story writing and sang in the choir. George's two months 
in the hospital Plebe summer with a broken leg did not stop him from participating in 
a great variety of intramural sports. His favorites turned out to be tumbling for batt 
gym and handball. With an open mind arid a stubborn will, George was as much a 
challenge as a debater as he was a sportsman.

One of those Navy Juniors, Ing has successfully begun to follow in his father's foot-

various other extracurricular activities that year, he settled down to earnest work on 
the Hop Committee and in company sports Youngster year. Academics never were 
much of a chore and adjustment to life at Navy came easily. He was always good for a 
cheerful word and helping hand and few problems were too tough for him to tackle. 
Not one to settle with any one girl, his big problem was his choice of drags for the week- 
ends. With his patience, warm personality and leadership abilities, Ing meets all the 
qualifications of an outstanding officer and gentleman.

John, the Shadow, Knief came to the Academy after two years at Menlo College and 
17 months in the Marine Corps. He knew what he wanted before entering the Academy 
and his mind remained unchanged throughout his four years. The Marine Corps was 
his calling. It is obvious that John liked sports when you look at his wide field of ath- 
letic interests: cross-country, steeplechase, softball, and football. His ability in sports 
is demonstrated by his record in steeplechase. He is a consistent ten-point man. He 
was probably the only man in the history of the Naval Academy to go through Plebe 
year without having to give a "wipe it off" smile.

It took four years and much persuasion, but Ted finally convinced the Navy that it 
never rains in California. Along with his sense of humor Ted came East, after a few 
years at Loyola University, with the competitive determination that made him a val- 
uable man on the Sixth Battalion football, bowling, and steeplechase squads. Besides 
fighting a losing battle with five or six book clubs and looking for a tender female ear 
to hear his life story, he still found time to do a fine job as Company Representative 
his Plebe and Youngster years. With a natural talent for academics and a hand for 
motors and auto racing, the fast pace of Navy Air should occupy Ted's efforts for a 
long time to come. 

Before coming to the Academy Mitch traveled quite a bit and enjoyed a sailor's life 
in every port. He liked it so well that he decided to continue this way of living. As 
soon as the privilege of dragging was in his hands he dedicated all his strength and in- 
genuity to finding a drag for every weekend with all its subsequent risks. In the field 
of extracurricular activities he participated in several successful presentations of the 
Musical Clubs Show, where he showed his talents as pianist and singer. His greatest 
ambition is to become a United States Marine and wear that "Green Demon" uniform. 
His fine qualities and aptitude will make him a distinguished member of the Corps.

If an imposing blond mountain walks into your room with a yard wide grin upon its 
countenance, don't be alarmed, it's only Dutch. As a Navy Junior, Dutch saw quite a 
bit of the world including 17 countries and 40 states. His first love being the water, 
Dutch is a sailor through and through. Plebe year he quickly earned his yawl command 
and spent many weekends on the briny deep. Any time left from sailing he spent in the 
wrestling loft or writing stories, drawing cartoons, and taking pictures for the Log 
and Splinter.

Tom, a Navy Junior, entered the Naval Academy immediately after graduating from 
high school. After establishing a battalion record in his event, Tom went on to become 
an outstanding member of the varsity swimming team, and was a mainstay in company 
sports. He carried mental as well as physical agility to the Academy and stood well in 
the upper segment of his class. Never content with his present achievements, Tom was

successful career in his chosen service.

Leaving the vibrant charms of many a California maiden behind him, Johnny embarked 
on his career in the Navy. Fortunately for his classmates, he retained his scintillating 
personality, which made him one of the most popular men in the company. Many a 
drag responded to this modern Don Juan, which, in a few instances, accounted for 
slight deviations from his high academic standing. Johnny always managed to find 
time for the Trident Society and the Christian Science Organization, even while plan- 
ning and designing his own sports car. The name Lovejoy is well known outside the 
Academy, as his rowing ability and high spirit led Navy's 150 pound crew squad to 
many a victory. 

Tex is one of our fair lads from sunny California. Easy going, soft spoken and friendly 
best describe him. He was a good all-around athlete addicted to West Coast jazz. He 
never had any serious trouble with either the Executive or academic departments. Tex 
was also quite talented in the field of art, having the honor of being the designer of our 
class crest. The only trouble he had in the department of romance was that of deciding 
which girl he liked best. Maybe he'll remain a bachelor officer long enough to make his 
choice a simple one.

Walt hails from the heart of the Grape Country. He was probably best known among 
his classmates as "the man with the circular slip-stick," as he was the only man in the 
Brigade who subjected himself to the disadvantages of a circular slide rule. Walt picked 
up the title of "Sputnik" when he became a member of the American Rocket Society, 
not that it dampened his ardor for space flight or science fiction. As a member of the 
Juice Gang, Walt provided spirit and entertainment in large quantities for the Brigade. 
His watchword was, "if you can't get one, build one."

Mike was one of the ones to have a jump on the academic side of life prior to coming 
to Canoe U, having attended Shinier College for two years. His interest was more than 
just academic, for one day early in Plebe year he was introduced to a target pistol and 
became so interested in it that he put in four years shooting it for Navy. He was also 
an excellent goalie for the company soccer team. When it comes to those who burn the 
midnight oil, it may well be said that Mike heads the list, for the sole purpose of writing 
to a certain OAO. Like all good Navy Juniors, he intends to put many years in the 
Navy.

Jerry developed an interest in sailing as a young lad. It was, therefore, not surprising 
that he took the long journey to the Naval Academy after graduating from high school. 
Here his salty yen was satisfied with four years of yawl sailing. An avid photographer, 
he was seldom without his camera, and sometimes even his drags played second fiddle 
to a speed graphic. The fruits of his labor were often seen in the Splinter. His greatest 
ambition in life is to go Navy Air. 

Mac came to Annapolis with a year at USF and one at City College in San Francisco. 
He soon found he could devote his energy to subjects other than academics, and still 
keep from bilging. His originality and humor made him very popular with his class- 
mates, but sometimes ran afoul with the Executive Department. Never daunted by 
opposition, he is energetic and resourceful, and will make an excellent line officer. He 
was a mainstay of the batt football team, and an experienced yawl sailor. He could be 
counted on to spread a little life into any gathering and was a welcome addition to any 
social event.

Bob followed in the footsteps of his father and brother when he came to the Naval 
Academy. Though very conscientious about academics, he never allowed them to in- 
terfere with his obligations to letter writing and a good workout in the fieldhouse. 
During his four years at USNA he displayed his proficiency as a pole vaulter for the 
track team even though it cost him a broken wrist. Bob let none of these things inter- 
fere with his weekends, for his destiny lay in his social activities. During his four years, 
he never lacked attractive feminine company.

home was evident in John's activeness in company sports and his strict study habits 
here at the Academy. It wasn't all work and worry for him though, for he possesses a 
mischievous sense of humor which led him to many practical jokes on his classmates. 
We know that John will be a great success in his one ambition, a career in the United 
States Marine Corps.

Military life was quite new to Dan as he spent most of his life living in a hotel. Studies 
came rather easy to him, though Webster and he could not agree on very much in the 
line of spelling. Dan was an avid sports car and hi-fi fan and he could often be found 
talking about one or the other. On the weekends when he wasn't dragging, he spent 
much of his time with the Reception Committee entertaining the visiting teams. He 
was always ready for a good party and when conversation lagged he would bring up 
his favorite subject of California. Dan's answer to the morale question: "serve beer in 
the Steerage." 

Jack arrived directly from the Berkeley Campus of the University of California 
where he spent a year majoring in chemical engineering. Equipped with this fine aca- 
demic background, Jack skillfully managed his studies. Many a puzzled classmate 
consulted him and walked away with the solution to problems in Skinny, Math, or 
Steam. Not too many weekends went by without Jack having his pizza pie. His love 
for Italian foods was surpassed only by his loyalty to his native California. A quiet and 
modest person, he found expression in rock and roll music, loud clothes, and boxing. 
As an avid reader of sea stories, Jack anxiously awaits the day he will report on board 
his first destroyer.

When Al, a Navy Junior, entered USNA he talked of nothing but football and his 
native state. A shoulder injury soon ruined his football career and "Overweight" had 
to be satisfied with showing his many admirers his scars. A 3.4 student, Al was as 
meticulous with his studies as he was with his personal appearance. He was never too 
busy to help a floundering classmate and soon gained the respect and admiration of all 
those beneath him. This sincere, friendly Californian, who spends his summers surfing 
or at the bullfights, plans to join the Western Pacific Fleet in San Diego, upon gradu- 
ation.

Although he was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, Chuck claims sunny California as 
his home state. He was always a keen student and ranked high in his class, with his 
major interests lying in history, political science, and economics. During his four 
years at Usnay he was a member of both the Plebe and varsity pistol teams and the 
Third Batt tennis team. He was also active in the Math and Political Economy 
Clubs as well as in the Forensic Activity. Chuck is very much interested in flying and 
looking forward to a career in Navy Air.

Coming to the Academy after two years at UCLA, Pete never forgot his frivolous days 
at the Sigma Pi House. The multitude of daily mail he received proved without a 
doubt his ability to attract the opposite sex. Believing in the theory of "learning by 
osmosis," Pete frequently called taps at aioo with a book under his pillow. When he 
wasn't spending his free time diligently working on the Lucky Bag or boasting about 
the sunny shores of California, he could be found hurling a fast curve for the company 
Softball team. Pete's determination, intelligence, and winning personality will lead to 
success in a service career. 



Phil, the son of an Academy graduate, quickly grew accustomed to his new surround- 
ings Plebe year and distinguished himself in academics and sports by maintaining an 
average above 3.4 and standing in the top of the class physically. His leadership was 
reflected on the company ball field and in the swimming pool where he participated in 
many varsity meets. Because of his many activities, Phil was rarely observed idly 
passing away free time, yet he always managed to devote some of it to helping a class- 
mate who may have needed his help. The Brigade has been proud to claim as its own 
a midshipman of such high caliber as was Phil.

As a Navy Junior from the Pacific Coast Bob came to the Academy with a seabag full 
of knowledge about the Navy. He proved that size is not everything by showing his 
ability in gymnastics and again in battalion track. With his great amount of energy 
Bob conquered every task, large or small, and consequently gained many stripes in 
the Brigade organization. Well liked by the girls, as well as by his classmates, he could 
usually be seen dragging on the weekends with a shapely lass at his side. As a Naval 
aviator, we predict Bob will be wearing admiral's stripes with a successful record 
behind him.

The "fuzzy cub," bringing with him his home grown sweater, came to us from Whittier, 
California. Jim's crop of steel wool was a constant amusement for us all. We could 
never understand why he insisted on wearing another sweater when that uniform was 
called for. Jim had many qualities which made him an outstanding member of Fifty- 
Nine. Among these were his never ending desire to do better and his endless ambition. 
Jim was always very active in extracurricular activities. To say the least, Jim, with 
his pleasing personality and great attitude, will be remembered by us all and will be 
accepted wherever he goes.

Few members of the graduating class are able to claim as many close friends as Jim. 
A multitude of nicknames, among which are included the likes of "Gremlin," "Smiley," 
and "Magoo," attributed to his Brigade-wide popularity. Born in California, he spent 
his youth in the thriving metropolis of San Mateo. Proving himself an apt student in 
high school, he decided to embark upon a military career. His success here is self- 
evident; activities including the Make-up Gang and the Catholic Choir as well as 
company athletics have made the term "free time" an unfamiliar one to this busy mid. 
After graduation, Jim plans to enter the Marine Corps. 



Rod grew up without knowing exactly what he wanted to do, and before he knew it he 
found himself at the Naval Academy. Navy didn't offer too great a mental challenge to 
him and he found time for other activities. He served on the Reception Committee for 
three years, was a Trident representative, and a member of the 1959 Ring Dance 
Committee. For sports Rod played soccer on the Plebe, JV, battalion, and company 
teams. As for his future, Rod hopes to make his mark on the Silent Service, and we 
wish him good luck.

Pete spent a year on the Stanford farm before matriculating at Canoe U. Meeting the 
rigors of Plebe year with his quick wit, he survived quite well. He was well known for 
his ability as a golfer, and he might be found in his room at any time sputtering some- 
thing about "gotta hit the ball like a pro," while practicing his swing. Combining a 
slightly epicurean personality with an intelligent mind, Rollo possessed the enviable 
quality of allowing nothing to render a departure from his capricious, yet serious, 
philosophy. It is this positive attitude that is indicative of his future success.

"T.A.j" another of the elite who claims California as his home, came to Crabtown as a 
well traveled Navy Junior. Academics never troubled Tom too much, and he rarely 
ever passed up an opportunity to hit the rack if homework was not pressing. For four 
years Tom was a standout on the company basketball team, leading them to a regi- 
mental crown during his Youngster year. He was also a handyman in the Natatorium 
and on the Academy links. Second Class summer at Pensacola seems to have shown 
Tom the best way of life for him. Look for him in the wild blue yonder in the near 
future.

A native of Seattle, Washington, Dave now claims Stockton, California, as his home, 
but both cities may well be proud of this fine midshipman. Dave has done exceptionally 
well in the many facets of a midshipman's life. Besides being a distinguished student, 
he also found time to sail with the varsity sailing team. His classmates find Dave tops. 
He possesses a fine sense of humor and a winning manner which make him a pleasant 
companion. His friends who dubbed him "Seeeers" did not mean this as a pun. The 
Navy will gain a fine officer when Midshipman Sears puts away his first classman's 
shoulder boards and dons those of an Ensign, USN. 



Jack hails from the land of orange trees and sunshine. Southern California's year round 
baseball weather always appealed to Jack who is an ardent baseball player and fan as 
well. Studies always managed to take up some of his time but they ran only a close 
second to the daily letter to a girl. Nevertheless he was a fine Dago student and could 
always study a Skinny lesson to the accompaniment of rock and roll records. As a 
Plebe, Jack's laughter often frustrated a First Classman's attempt to be stern. The 
likeable personality and sense of humor that characterized him will be long remembered 
by his classmates.

After four years in submarines of the Pacific Fleet, Don came up for a breath of air and 
decided to have a try at USNA. He never stopped trying and his success is evidenced by 
his high class standing and abundant professional knowledge. By nature rather quiet, 
Don, nevertheless, has a fine sense of humor and tells some dandy stories about the 
sea. A good part of his time away from academics was spent aboard the battalion 
yawls, usually as the skipper. Second Class summer nearly made an aviator of him, 
but previous ties are not easily broken and Don will answer COMSUBPAC's call to 
follow in the footsteps of his boyhood ideal, Captain Nemo.

This quiet, studious midshipman made the long trek eastward to join the Class of '59 
in the blazing heat of the summer of '55. Since that time, Dean became a member of the 
Photography and Spanish Clubs as well as the Naval Academy Concert Band. Wres- 
tling was his favorite sport, and he was a member of the Plebe team, and saw action on 
the battalion team for three years. He prefers the Navy as a career and hopes to go 
into the Civil Engineer Corps upon graduation.

Wade, an Army Brat familiar with the wilds of West Point, calls California his home. 
Coming to the Academy via Drew Prep, he managed easily to get by the academic 
departments without the aid of late lights or gouges. Utilizing efficiently his spare time, 
the "bashful blonde" always kept abreast of current events. He still found time to 
amass on his almost unbeatable record collection. While spending his weekends writing 
his California "cutie" and sleeping, Wade decided upon a life in Marine Air, where his 
subtle humor and wit will undoubtedly aid him in his career. 

Bob joined the "flying squadron" even before he was sworn in. Situated in Germany 
when his appointment came through and having only a few days to report for duty, he 
found himself stranded there without a passport! Bob made friends easily due to his 
beaming personality and a quartet of pretty sisters. Sportswise, Bob was busy bringing 
home points for those championship Third Battalion and Twelfth Company football 
and softball teams. It looks like those "wings of gold" will be Bob's post-graduation 
dream.

Since that summer when he walked through the main gate of the Academy for the first

good spirit added much to his classmate's day. Pete's strong drive to succeed and do 
well was known to everyone. Evidence of this could be found on the Superintendent's 
List of which Pete was an inseparable member. In addition to his academic prowess, 
he is a well rounded athlete with track sports his speciality. He brought in numerous 
points for his company in cross country and steeplechase and was a valuable member 
of the batt track team. San Diego's loss was truly our gain for the past four years, as 
they couldn't have sent us a nicer guy.

Intelligence, curiosity, and a versatile capability are the forces behind Lee's active 
Academy history. From the stars above his anchors to the varsity pistol range and decks 
of the Academy yawls, are seen the tangible results of these forces. His leisure hour 
interest in hi-fi has led him to assume the position of the sixth wing radio repairman. 
In the social sphere, Lee is still looking for that certain girl. He has fervant hopes of 
spending a long time looking far and wide. The destroyers and the submarines are get- 
ting a reliable, valuable, and well-developed officer.

Small towns seem to be in the majority in Al's pre-maritime biography. But after join- 
ing the "boys in blue," he quickly picked up the ways of a city lad, and became well 
known and liked for his incessant smiles. His efforts went principally into academics, 
although no records were ever broken in that field. The Brigade Activities Committee 
and many company and battalion sports squads filled his spare time quite well, as did 
his grinding hours in the boxing ring. 



Tim entered the Academy from Bullis Prep. Although he lived in Norfolk, Virginia, 
he laid claim to sunny California as his home state. His keenest interest was sports, 
particularly football and baseball. He played on the Plebe and varsity baseball teams 
and was active in many company sports. Tim could always relax best while listening 
to his favorite rock 'n roll record. His first love was the Marine Corps and his trade- 
mark was a marine green cap. In his four years at Canoe U, Tim has made many lasting 
friends and has developed the qualities of leadership which will carry him far in his 
career as an officer in the United States Marine Corps.

Rod found Academy life well suited to his interests. WRNV claimed much of his time, 
and he could usually be found working on a project at the station during his spare mo- 
ments. There was many a study hour that was spent working on a friend's radio, or 
giving him advice on how to fix it. Academic life offering no trouble, he found much 
time to take part in the extracurricular activities around the Academy. Social affairs 
also played a big part in Rod's life, as he anxiously awaited each weekend.

Larry was born in Oklahoma, but spent most of his life enjoying the California sun- 
shine. Prior to entering Usnay, he attended Fresno State College in his home town. He 
participated in Plebe and JV soccer, and sparked the Second Battalion bowling team 
for several seasons. He was an active member of the Ring Dance Committee and Re- 
ception Committee and was elected company representative. Larry hopes to become 
successful in rocketry and military science some day, but there is no doubt that he will 
be a success in anything he tries in the future.

Having attended the University of California for a year, Larry was an old hand at col-

pictures and working in a dark room. Although a man of high ideals, he had his 
four years of fun. His motto must have been "love 'em all," as he had at least five 
girls on the string at one time. Larry enjoyed sports, and could frequently be seen on 
the flying rings hustling for the Sixth Batt. "Larry Weaver, sure, I remember him. He 
was the guy always willing to help you out." 

Nineteen hundred thirty-seven saw the arrival of this jovial joker in that distant state 
of California, and June, 1955 found him on the civilized side of the frontier for the first 
time. Quickly entering into the spirit of Navy life, he became a member of the Choir 
and Glee Club, adding his fine voice to their presentations. Academics came easy to 
Doug and he had plenty of time to devote to his company and battalion sport squads, 
yet was always available for a study hour bridge game. Doug's affable manner won him 
many friends throughout the Brigade and his natural wit kept a smile on the faces of 
those around him. Planning to enter Navy Line upon graduation, Doug will easily 
excel in his future career.

After two years of college in Detroit, Bob entered our hallowed halls. Indoctrinated 
at an early age with the Navy spirit through his father's tours as a recruiting officer, 
he could always be counted on to tell of the "good deal" to be had in a service career, 
especially one in subs. The ease with which he came up with the right answer won him 
his stars, and his readiness to help others won him many friends. A perennial on the 
company cross country squads, he could be counted on for that winning point 
every time. Bob will be sorely missed by his classmates and a truly welcome addition 
to the Fleet.

Teddy came to Navy from Los Angeles and still holds a firm belief that the West Coast 
is the better half of the United States. He was one of the most active members of our 
class. Plebe year found Ted on the rifle team but this sport was replaced by cheerleading 
during the next three years. As a cheerleader, Ted helped to raise the spirit of the Bri- 
gade to its maximum. In spite of his constant struggle against the academic forces, he 
found time to enjoy the finer things in life and weekends found him escorting a member 
of the fairer sex. With his personality and interest in the military Ted can't be anything 
but an outstanding officer.

Howie will always be remembered by his classmates as a veteran of many tea fights 
and few run-ins with the Executive Department. His sense of humor and willingness 
to help have made him one of the more popular members of his class. He is a highly 
devoted and sincere man, constantly striving to do his best, and is always alert and ea- 
ger to accept a new challenge. Be it wine, women, song, or the Navy, he will make a 
fine addition to Navy Line and a fine pilot if he should receive a calling to the "wild 
blue yonder." 

Although Tom was born in Galveston, Texas, he could always be found elaborating 
on the glories and advantages of California life. A great sports fan, he devoted much 
of his free time to athletics. A trick knee kept him from advancing past Plebe lacrosse 
on the varsity level. It did, however, enable him to become "captain" of the excused 
squad for three years. Every Sunday saw Tom climb out of the rack a little early to 
sing in the choir. He was always quick to smile and managed to come up with a cute 
drag for every occasion. A true friend, his easy going manner and determination will 
take him far in his Naval career.

Dick lived in Chicago for some time before making his home in California. Coming 
straight from high school, Dick was the first to enter a service academy from Davis. 
The nickname "Bull" was given to him while he was engaged in the rigors of Plebe 
year. The upperclass took great pride in developing "Bull's" talent for chow calling. 
With an inclination towards sports, Dick spent much time at cross country, steeple- 
chase, Plebe track, batt fencing, and batt swimming. He was a member of the Phys- 
ics and French Clubs. Dick had a "never-stop" philosophy as far as studies were con- 
cerned, and never failed to be well prepared for each daily recitation. Seems as though 
Navy Line will have another "Bull" in the fleet, as Dick is sure to make fine officer 
material.

This tall Coloradoan is another believer in the old saying, "five years never hurt 
anyone." Throughout his stay at the Academy, he found most of his time taken up 
trying to beat Navy, although he did find time to earn the title of "the sleeping giant." 
Before he came to the Academy, Jim spent a year in the Navy and during a two year 
vacation he learned the fine arts of the telephone company and civil engineering. Al- 
though he likes the outdoor life, he says that he has found a home in the Navy. Some 
of Jim's favorite pastimes were western music, playing chess and telling jokes. When- 
ever things were low, his humorous remarks could be counted on to make things lower.

Better known as Mike, James spent most of his life in Denver. He was well liked by 
everyone and represented his class in the "Fighting Fifth." For those who did not know 
him personally it was still easy to recognize his presence by his big smile and charac- 
teristic laugh. Mike was a skiing enthusiast, but at USNA he could almost always be 
found in the third wing squash courts. He exercised his presence in sport as a member 
of the battalion squash team for three years. He has a genuine interest in the military 
and will surely make a fine officer as well as an aviator.

Dave came to USNA after a year's study at Colorado State University as a mechanical

He earned his numerals on the Plebe football team and played four years as a top 
guard on the Second Battalion gridiron squad. Navy Air and marriage are Dave's 
next hurdles. We are sure he will be a success in both. 



Hank came to the Academy after a long life with the Army, his father being a Colonel 
in that service. Having spent the greater part of Plebe year demonstrating his un- 
equaled ability at close order drill, he embarked on Youngster cruise to recuperate. 
He never lost his cruise habits and easily captured all honors as Navy's outstanding 
performer on the blue trampoline. During his spare time, Hank was always on the golf 
course and, as a Youngster, he qualified in the Easterns to attend the National Golf 
Tournament in Colorado. Hank's big aim in life seems to be to play golf, but he plans to 
take time out to match his golf truimphs in Navy Air.

cats' best glockenspiel player. Model locomotives (or anything having to do with trans- 
portation), company sports, and females were his favorite pastimes and took up a great 
deal of his free time. "Deacon" was always ready to give a helping hand to anyone and 
this, as well as his easy going manner, won him many friends and made him a great

involved in a hot rally on the tennis courts during the fall and spring seasons or working 
out with the company football team in the winter. He was always conscientious whether 
it was sports, studies, or Plebe indoctrination. With the will and the ability to do any

Describing Daniel Charles Richardson in a few words, is like condensing a dictionary 
into a two page pamphlet. He is one of the few truly outstanding people one meets in a 
lifetime. Coming directly from high school with his winning smile and sparkling per- 
sonality, he took the Academy by storm. His tenacity and never-ending quest for knowl- 
edge consistently placed him near the top of his class. This dedication to duty brought 
him into the high esteem of his classmates. But as hard as he worked, he played just as 
hard. Whether in the squash court, boxing ring, on the football field or dragging, 
Danny always scored. His dedication to hard work and duty will insure him success. 

Bob came to USNA directly from high school in Colorado Springs, where he lived 
during all the years of his grade school and high school education. He was appointed to 
the USNA by his congressman and, after successfully passing the entrance exams, re- 
ported for his Plebe summer training on June 27, 1955. With the beginning of academic 
year, Bob found himself in the Fourth Company where he was active in soccer, softball, 
and steeplechase and led the company to many victories by his timely points in the 
homestretch of the steeplechase track.

Bill's endeavor in the academic field, although not outstanding, was always more than 
adequate. Representing his company and battalion classmates kept Bill busy, as did

himself to be outstanding by being one of the top sprinters on the track team. He sang

It can probably be safely said that Andy attempted to beat the system more times than

Youngster cruise brought the start of his questionable career at USNA. Even his 
normally complacent company officer was visibly shaken when he saw some of his 
reports. Many of us in '59 will remember the fateful morning when all six battalion 
offices were receiving countless calls from the Main Office changing the uniform from 
blue works to white works and back again. Despite his antics, Andy was welcome any- 
where, and should make an outstanding Naval officer.

A true "Connecticut Yankee," Ron turned down the opportunity to play basketball 
for NYU and entered our hallowed halls one hot day in June of '55. A forward gainer 
off the "high shelf" on the obstacle course put a dampener on his basketball future at 
Navy, but he pushed the Second Company to two Brigade championships, nonetheless. 
He was cursed with the task of keeping his stars polished throughout his four years, 
thus managing the highest grades with minimum effort. Each weekend found him 
dragging or taking the train to the University of Pennsylvania. Destined to go far in 
whatever service he may choose, Ron will always be remembered as the guy who 
wouldn't quit. 





EDWARD G. REDDEN 

Sixteenth Company 
Waterbury 

Eddie, deciding against the carefree life of a college student, embarked upon his dif- 
ficult life as a midshipman upon graduation from high school. "The Waterbury Whiz," 
as he was often called, was never one to turn down a fast game of basketball for his 
books but usually had little worry when the exams rolled around. When not on the 
basketball court, Ed could usually be found trying to fathom a Skinny lesson, making 
plans for the next football game or figuring out a new way of beating the Executive 
Department. Extracurricular-wise, Ed was on the Lucky Bag staff and a player on the 
company basketball and fieldball teams. With his great sense of humor and warm per- 
sonality, he will be one of the well remembered members of '59. He is bound to find 
success wherever the future sends him.

Although a Navy Junior, Del claims only one hometown, New London. It is from here 
that he came to USNA, with his box of weights and a love for subs. From the beginning 
he waged a constant battle with the academic departments, but always managed to 
outwrite them when the chips were down. Famous for his Santa act at Christmas, he 
was always willing to have fun at anyone's expense, even though it meant a little extra 
studying after taps. As the company's ace pitcher, Del helped to win the softball 
championship. With his fighting spirit, he should have no trouble getting anything else 
he tries for.

"Strohsahl absent." This phrase was often heard by the study hour inspector while Biff 
was in the second wing basement squeezing sweet music from his cool sax. The NA-io, 
however, wasn't the only organization to take part of Biff's free time. His Plebe year 
performance in Room Service will be remembered by all. His name could generally 
be found on the Superintendent's List, illustrating that his talents included more than 
music and action. Biff's interest in flying prompted him to defy the Executive Depart- 
ment many weekends to spend his time gold cloud hopping in a light plane from Annap- 
olis Airport. 



WILLIS S. WHITTLESEY, III

Class president for three years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Whit entered our hal- 
lowed halls in the hot summer of '55. A great competitor, he was a tremendous help 
to the baseball team as he managed to stop some pretty wild balls that came hurling 
from the mound. Off the diamond, it was easy to find Whit in the squash courts. Well- 
liked by all, he is bound for the destroyers and thirty years in Navy Line.

George was always just a natural sort of guy upon whom one could always depend. 
Perhaps there are few in the world who are as honest and sincere as is he. A staunch 
supporter of company sports squads, he consistently aided the football and softball 
teams. Destined for Navy Air, George, with his fine basic foundation, will certainly 
make a fine Naval officer and be an asset to the service.

Marty is a native of the first city in the first state. Mart came to USNA via Wilming- 
ton High School and Columbian Prep. "Jaws" was well known for his fine attack play 
on the battalion and varsity lacrosse teams. He could easily be called the happiest 
mid in the Brigade. After four years of Navy life at USNA, Marty has decided Navy 
Line will offer him a most promising career.

Homer came to the Naval Academy after a year at Swarthmore College. Finding Plebe 
year within his abilities, he devoted much time to women and chess, his favorite pas- 
times. Sportswise, he spent his time with the Fourth Company soccer team and with 
his battalion teams in tennis, squash, and table tennis. His steady habits of hard work 
will stand him in good stead in his chosen service of Navy Line. 



EDWARD W. GIBBONS

Ed was Navy's big product from the little town of St. Georges, Delaware. During his 
Plebe year, Ed was a hustling end on the Plebe eleven but decided to turn his full atten- 
tion to lacrosse. Ed lettered and developed into a topnotch player. From the day he 
walked through the gate, he was a leader and a friend to all. Although he was a top 
striper in the Brigade, he was still known as one of the boys. The only problem Ed 
had was keeping his women in line and, when it appeared as if he was all set, he sud- 
denly gained a few more admirers.

Tony came to USNA after relinquishing a scholarship to Villanova. Known for a di- 
versity of interests, he could talk on anything from aircraft to ancient history. Beside 
running the halfback slot in batt football, he also tried his hand in judo, sailing and 
track. The remainder of the time he spent writing for the Trident and as a disc 
jockey for WRNV. His big weakness was beautiful blondes, and an achievement he 
never realized was to build his own car in the Steam shops. Classmates will never for- 
get his question in Skinny where his concern for four long years was "what will the 
little electron do?" His ambitions center in the Marine Corps and graduate work at 
MIT in nuclear engineering.

Joe,- a native of New Orleans, is one of the easy going type, but' one who never fails to 
get the job done. Sports is one of his biggest hobbies. In high school he was a three- 
letter man in football, basketball and baseball. During his Academy career, Joe earned 
his Plebe letters in football and baseball, and lettered his last three years in baseball, 
being one of the principal and most valuable players on the team. For his fierce com- 
petitive spirit, he was given the appropriate nickname of "Boom-Boom" by his team- 
mates. Joe is a fine fellow and capable leader and is sure to make a top-notch officer.

After graduating from Lewes High School, Doug reported to the Naval Academy. Al- 
though he claims to have had a rough Plebe summer, he learned fast and soon became 
one of the top men in his company. He participated in many intramural sports, in- 
cluding touch football, gym, and company basketball. Indoors Doug could always be 
counted on to join in any game of bridge that needed a fourth. Among his other in- 
terests were tennis and high-fidelity music. After graduation he plans to go into Navy 
Line, preferably submarines.

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Hank spent the last ten years as a resident of Jackson-

pre-graduation training for the Corps, Hank spent his Second Class summer as a 
"DI" for the class of '6 1.

Phil entered the Academy after completing a year of engineering at Ohio State. He 
learned to "loop the loops on the hoops" during three years of varsity gym competition 
at Navy. Only another flying rings' man could appreciate that "feet off the ground" 
feeling. When not playing ape, Phil enjoyed swimming and golf and also spent hours 
at the bridge table. As photo editor of the Trident Calendar, he displayed further 
talents. An important part of his personality was his eagerness to enjoy himself. Ac- 
cording to this aerialist, there's "nothing like a good blast." Future years should see 
Phil swinging to the top.

Al was an education for us all. In his quiet gentlemanly way, he made our four years 
at Navy quite pleasant. From a background in the southern Florida wilderness and 
many long summers spent on shrimp boats plus two years in his beloved Marine Corps, 
he gained much useful experience. He proved a good companion in both work and play. 
Al was a mainstay on the company soccer team and battalion water polo team through- 
out his four years. We hope to see Al with his wings soon, for he has always wanted to 
fly. From his knack of coming through with flying colors on all his exams, we are sure 
he will obtain whatever he seeks.

Tom came to USNA from Admiral Farragat Academy and Bullis Prep School. His 
tan gave a ready indication of where he spent his leave time. His adeptness in athletics 
proved a great aid to the Thirteenth Company soccer team, 150-pound football team, 
and the basketball team. When not working out, Tom could be found at his desk, slide 
rule in hand. Although always worrying about bilging and constantly complaining 
about his grades, his average was never below 3.0. He hopes to go into Naval Aviation 
where his infectious smile and devilish spirit should fit in well. 

Jess, our favorite beachcomber, always had an original word for everyone. He had a 
tremendous appetite for learning, food, and projects which varied anywhere from diet- 
ing to designing a shoulder patch for the Class of '59. He was a member of the Plebe 
football squad and the Italian Club, and his main ambition was submarines and to 
one day command his own. His well known dependability at the Academy assures him 
of success, and wherever he goes, a more loyal and devoted friend will be difficult to 
find.

Academy life for Sam was more than routine. It has, in fact, molded him into an ex- 
tremely military minded individual. A "Cracker" from northern Florida, he brought 
along his hunting and fishing interest to the Academy from which he constantly sought 
satisfaction. Eaqh afternoon for four years Sam was seen on the Severn in the varsity 
lightweight shell, where his ancient hunting readily identified him pulling a starboard 
oar. After graduation, Sam desires to make the "Silent Service" his career.

Bill, as the son of a high ranking Naval Officer, came to the Academy slightly more 
versed in the ways of military life than most of us. He quickly caught on to the routine, 
thus proving to us landlubbers that it could be done. Bill gave his best to company 
sports, especially volleyball in which he excelled for four years. We are sure that, as a 
self professed career man, he will meet with success in those "unexpected hours" that 
often prove disastrous to lesser men.

Giles' one ambition throughout his stay at the Academy was to be one of the Blue 
Angels. He came to the Academy after being indoctrinated in the ways of the USMC, 
in which he spent two hard years. This was evident in the exuberant way he celebrated 
June Week for he once made the statement, "If I had to go through one more June 
Week, I wouldn't graduate. Conduct you know!" Being the sort of fellow he is, it would 
not be a surprise to see him with the elite of Navy Air, the Blue Angels. 

Jim came to the Academy after spending two years at the Citadel in Charleston, 
where he played football and varsity track. At the Academy he also participated in 
Plebe football and Plebe track until his eligibility ran out Youngster year. He was 
quite active in church activities and worked hard for the Baptist Church in Annapolis. 
Since Jim is one who likes the Navy and the sea, he expects to remain but cannot quite 
decide between the thrills of Navy Air and the surface Navy or Submarines.

The most noticeable characteristic of our friend Tom is the phenomenal speed with 
which he performs his daily tasks. One can readily understand the name "Rocket" 
which he acquired Youngster year. Tom excelled in the Glee Club and Chapel Choir as 
he did when he was in high school. "Rocket's" greatest problem was finding time to 
write to his many loves, which were scattered from Wellesley College all the way to 
Tallahassee with numerous stops between. Upon leaving our fair institution, "Rocket" 
plans on spending his time in the Navy as a Line Officer.

Claiming to be a misplaced Rebel, Tom claimed Fort Lauderdale as his podunk, al- 
though he spent most of his life in New Jersey. Since living in the Sunshine State, he 
acquired a keen interest in skin-diving and water-skiing. Academics were quite a prob- 
lem for Tom. When he was not struggling through the curses of Mr. Ohm and his 
famous law, he could be found in Skinny lab sending up smoke signals from the De- 
partment's expensive collection of ammeters. With the spare time that he did have, 
he divided it between the trampoline and tennis.

A product of the South, Tom was a die-hard Rebel and will probably retain his southern 
accent the rest of his life. Never becoming accustomed to reveille, he seldom opened 
his eyes more than a narrow slit until after breakfast. Usually managing to maintain 
a passing average with a minimum of effort, he lived for his weekends. A charter mem- 
ber of the Flying Squadron and the "poolies," Tom will be remembered for his booming 
voice and for his laugh which defies description. He was always ready to admit that he 
liked fine guns, good Kentucky bourbon, and beautiful southern belles. 

Dave was born in Washington, D. C, but claims West Palm Beach as his home. Swim- 
ming was his sport, and he competed on the varsity and Plebe level for four years at 
Navy. During the off-season, Dave favored yawl sailing, preferably of the drag variety. 
In addition he participated in the Antiphonal Choir and various other activities. Dave's 
motto is "Navy Air all the way," and Navy Air's gain will be the Naval Academy's loss.

Bob came to us from the University of Florida where, for a year, he could be seen either 
hanging around the KA Fraternity House or the engineering labs, completely unaware 
of what opportunities were in store for him. Here at Navy, Bob kept busy both in 
maintaining his high scholastic standing and playing intramural athletics, in which he 
distinguished himself as an outstanding softball pitcher. Navigation was an old story 
to Bob who believed in using only the Mark I eyeball during many pleasant hours of 
sailing from island to island off the Florida coast. Upon graduation, Bob plans to stay 
with the Navy blue and will certainly be a most welcome addition to any duty station. 



123 



Frank came to the Academy via Swanee Military Academy and Sullivan's Prep School. 
A true sailor, he contributed much to yawl sailing at Navy. Although he had a few 
close scrapes with the academic departments, he always managed to come out on top. 
His main interest being flying, he has become a devoted student of aviation and awaits 
the day when he will fly with the Fleet. Although his one love is Florida, dragging, 
music, and a soft rack also rate high with him. A tourist at heart, you can expect to 
find Frank in some foreign land during summer leave.

Al was born to an Army family at Fort Benning but managed to break away and fol- 
low his brother to Annapolis. His varied background at many Army posts around the 
world helped him develop a wonderful personality, and prepared him for Naval dis- 
cipline. His travels also gave him a wonderful chance to practice his favorite hobby, 
photography. Besides photography, Al likes music, reads a good deal, and plans for 
a long and happy career in Navy Line. 

Jack, a Rebel from start to finish, always kept things interesting in sedate old Bancroft 
by playing a continuous game of "cops and robbers" with the Executive Department. 
He was luckier when it came to out-guessing the academic departments over the ques- 
tions on quizzes. Jack always maintained that it was better to be lucky than a genius 
and spent four years here attempting to graduate in spite of everyone. He finished strong 
in PT if nothing else. He spent quite a bit of time with the D and B and Reception 
Committee but his favorites were always sports cars and leave. Known for his ever- 
present sense of humor, good nature and a willingness to be of help in any situation, 
Jack's presence will be a welcome addition to any group.

Fred comes to us from the sunny state of Florida, which could be the explanation why 
he 4.0'd his swimming tests and became a champion goalie for the Second Battalion 
water polo team. Even though he spent most of his time at extra instruction, he managed 
to slip by the final examinations. His temper is a natural result of his red hair, which 
showed when he bilged easy quizzes. Since Fred made minimum use of his brown bag 
during Second Class summer, we are sure that he will make an excellent Naval Air 
Officer.

Les made the short trip from Baltimore Poly during the hot summer of 1955 to start 
his four years of study on the Severn. During his Plebe year he showed everyone just 
how versatile he was by standing above average in academics and earning Plebe 
numerals in cross-country, swimming and track. Running became his main athletic 
interest and "J oe >" a s he was known to his teammates, became one of the stalwarts 
of both Navy cross-country and track. However, Les' interests and abilities were not 
limited to sports as he served on the Ring Dance Committee. With his numerous abil- 
ities, no matter where he goes in the Navy, Les will always be a welcomed addition to 
any ship or station.

A native son of Texas, Prendy graduated from Coral Gables High School in 1954 and 
attended a year at the University of Texas where he won his Buccaneer Service Ribbon. 
He left Texas University to join three of his buddies at the Academy. Prendy could be 
seen during sports season bringing in his ten points for the cross country and steeple- 
chase teams. After graduation, he will most likely be found on the bridge of a destroyer 
anywhere in the world that it is warm. 

Ed undertook the trek to the Academy upon his graduation from Miami-Jackson 
Senior High School in Miami. Academics were never too much of a problem for him. 
He had plenty of time to help out in company athletics and to spend reading. He has 
the unofficial record for the most books read on Academy time. Though the Academy 
and Navy life were dear to his heart, his first love was Florida. Always friendly and 
good natured, he would willingly share anything. He will undoubtedly be a great as- 
set to the Naval profession.

diligently on the tennis team and was of great assistance to the varsity squad. His 
athletic ability enabled him to be an asset to the company squash team and battalion 
handball team. Harry's keen use of common sense made academics easy for him and 
his roommates. He prefers Navy to any other branch of the service and we can be sure 
he will become an outstanding officer.

Courtney was born and raised in Fort Pierce, Florida, and came to Navy from Dan 
McCarty High School. He tried and did well in a little bit of everything from academ- 
ics and debating to being a crew coxswain. In between times, he played on the com- 
pany cross country and volleyball teams. When he said, "Did I ever tell you about the 
time that . . . ," it means a joke or a sea story is on its way. Navy Line will never 
change one thing, Courtney is a confirmed Rebel.

An aviation enthusiast, Dick was drawn to the Naval Academy by visions of Naval 
Aviation which had to be abandoned when his visual acuity deserted him. Once here 
he devoted himself to intramural sports, the blue trampoline, and the improvement of 
his knowledge of classical music. He still believes that "Tchaikovsky's Fifth" is a bottle 
of vodka. An advocate of replacing Bull with a course in nucleonics, he was always 
ready to help a classmate having trouble in Skinny or Dago. Weekends found him in 
the yard or on the bay dragging his OAO from nearby Virginia. 



WALTER P. WYNN, JR.

After graduating from high school, Wynnie took a trip to Annapolis to continue his 
studies, which he has successfully done. Always ready for sailing or racing, he could 
usually be found somewhere on the bay. If not at Concert Band, sailing, or Musical 
Clubs show practices, one could always find him in the rack listening to his classical 
music. Wynnie considers Navy Air the best future for him.

Andy came to Navy Tech from Robins A.F.B., though he claimed a number of spots 
throughout the country as his home. The son of an Air Force officer, he was never 
fazed by the thousand times he was asked why he came to Navy. After having com- 
pleted three years in various high schools, he received his pre-Academy training at 
Braden Prep in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York. Being a staunch advocate of air 
power he was naturally a member of the Aeronautical Engineering Club. Of the many 
sports which he liked, soccer and steeplechase stood first. His pet peeve was that he 
could never gain the honored title of "shortest man in the company" because there 
was always just one man behind him.

Peach, an old "Southern gentleman" from way back, was just about the easiest going 
guy around. He was a living example of true southern hospitality and always had a 
good word for everyone. He spent his free time with sports and body building. There 
was a definite method in his madness, however, for he really wowed the girls on leave 
and scared 'em too. Peach was a great guy to have with you when it was time to enjoy 
yourself and yet one could count on him for help with any troubles.

Born South of the border in Rio de Janeiro, Bob came to the Academy after one year 
at Duke University. He had little trouble with academics, and showed a diversity of 
interests in his sporting and social activities. An ardent admirer of the Brooklyn 
Dodgers and hill-billy music, he frequently entertained his classmates and friends with 
his baseball talk, guitar, and pleasant country music. After classes, Bob spent most of 
his time boxing and proved himself to be a tough, eager competitor. With his fighting 
spirit and calm, friendly way, Bob will have no trouble in his chosen career, the fight- 
ingest outfit in the world, the U.S. Marines. 

Hardy came to the Academy by way of the Navy and expects to head back that way 
upon graduation. Greg was known by his theme song "Marching Through Georgia" 
and he combined the qualities of a southern gentleman and a sailor. He could be seen 
over at Hubbard Hall most every afternoon, except Sunday, which was golf time. He 
was a member of both the Plebe and the varsity 150 pound crews.

Bob, bringing his quiet and easy way with him to the Academy from his small home- 
town, found it a harsh task to give up his way of life for the fast and furious pace of 
USNA. His ability to run well and shoot straight provided a place for him on the Plebe 
cross country, track, and pistol teams and on company squads. Between fighting the 
academic departments and the Civil War, Bob found time to drag, that is, at least 
twice a year. His quiet, relaxed manner served him well during our four years and we 
predict it will continue to do so through his service career. Prior to entering the Acade- 
my, he completed one year at North Georgia College and part of a year at Georgia Tech. 



128 




After a year at Georgia Tech, Jim took up the long awaited opportunity to come to 
Navy. With a high scholastic standing and three years of Atlanta high school football 
backing him, he began his academic years by making the Superintendent's List and 
was constantly plugging on the battalion football team. He was quite often found 
reading the newspaper and magazines. Through this, he became almost an "answer 
man" to inquiring Plebes, as well as a star man in Bull. As company and Newman 
Club representative, he did a fine job and still found time to help bilging classmates. 
As a leader, Jim has everything needed to qualify among the top.

Being an Army Brat, Ray was quite familiar with military life. Thus, Plebe year posed 
no great problem for him. While academics were not the least of his worries, he always 
managed to find time to read a good book, preferably on early American Naval History, 
or to listen to his favorite music on his hi-fi recorder. Ray loved to play football, and 
although he always managed to collect many bruises doing so, he strengthened the 
Third Batt backfield considerably with his outstanding performances. Ray could al- 
ways be relied upon to get a hard job done and to do it well. 

Joe had his share of Civil War discussions, particularly since his roommates hailed from 
New York and Illinois. Known as the "Quiet Man," he didn't care to engage in dis- 
putes. The movies out in Crabtown were his escape from routine which made him the 
man to see if in doubt about a show. Though he has seen something of the world, good 
old north Georgia remains his favorite place. Joe's famous smile will no doubt continue 
as his trade-mark in the Fleet.

Frank was born and reared in Atlanta, and attended Emory University for one year 
before coming to Navy. At the Academy he stood close to the top of his class in academ- 
ics. Besides his studies, he enjoyed intramural sports, especially bowling. Extremely 
good natured, Frank loved a practical joke. After class he could always be found lifting 
weights. On Saturday nights he could invariably be located in Antoinette's with the 
boys on SOP. A real heart-breaker, Seiior Romez had girls in every port. Frank goes 
into the Navy Line upon graduation. His high capabilities make him a sure bet to reach 
the top.

Add his quiet Western wit to his constant effort to do the best job possible in academics 
and sports and you have our own Dick Buxton. He is one of the best friends a person 
could have, since he does believe that friends are true. His biggest problem is the 2600 
mile trek home and back that he manages to make twice a year. Typical of all mid-

the Navy.

Em took an active interest in battalion track, wrestling, and Brigade boxing after he 
entered the Academy. His extracurricular activities included the Portuguese Club and 
dragging, both of which he enjoyed immensely. Em's biggest problem while here was 
keeping his many drags from finding out about each other. His likeable personality and 
strong ambition to make good in life should take him far in his chosen profession of 
Navy Line.

This fair haired boy came to the Academy looking for adventure and a little fun. Not 
one to worry about p-works and inspections, Pete made the weekend the highspot of 
his Academy life. There always seemed to be a different miss coming to see him. When 
the class bell rang, Pete would climb out of the rack, dust off his blues and ask, "What 
class are we going to?" Always sorry that the Academy didn't have a ski team, Pete 
could be found every afternoon taking part in tennis, track, or basketball. A dedicated 
pilot, he will be a happy man in Navy Air.

During the past four years, many have seen the tall and slender form of Karl Moellmer 
scurrying about Bancroft Hall, busy at one job or another. He was the epitome of 
efficiency. Successful in all that he undertook, whether it was the solution of some par- 
ticularly difficult Skinny problem or merely shining shoes, you could always count on 
Karl to get it done speedily and accurately. His sense of humor is one of the keenest. 
His first love is music and, being a fine musician himself, both the fourth and sixth 
terraces came to know him intimately as the excellent fifer with the new and original 
scores. Surely this is one lad who is destined to go a long way in this man's Navy.

Bill, a Fleet man with nearly three years of active duty in the Navy, hails from Aurora. 
Throughout his four years at the Academy, a genial personality and humorous out- 
look have characterized him. This was especially true in those times when spirits were 
low and tempers high. Bill could always be counted on to provide the humor necessary 
to enliven the spirits of his classmates. Dragging at the Academy never proved to be a 
problem with Bill. His formula of maximum enjoyment vs. minimum expense was as 
familiar to the Brigade as F = MA. Bill's extracurricular activities included a host of 
victories on the softball field, where his pitching form became famous. Navy Line will 
gain a valued asset when Bill reports aboard his first command.

tions, but had to spend several months in the hospital Plebe year. He could be found 
every evening during study hour pouring over a magazine and listening to one of the 
latest and "coolest" jazz "LP's." With all this, his talents were still available at any 
time when one of his classmates had a totally impossible electric circuit to be solved. 
Battona directed four years at the Academy to the development of his "foil the Ex- 
ecutive Department" scheme. With all his abilities, it will be a surprise if Jack does 
not go far in the world.

Only five feet-six inches tall, Bill was of great stature among his classmates. A pedi- 
greed "slash," he maintained well above a starring academic average throughout his 
years at the Academy. Aside from this, many noticed him because of his ill-fitting 
uniforms when attempting to make the weight for the wrestling team. Perhaps Bill's 
most ardent endeavor is his jazz record collection, a part of which may be heard 
anytime you happen to be passing by. It is taken for granted that Bill will go far with 
his easy, but active, manner.

Embarking on his new life only a few short weeks after his high school graduation, 
Denny soon adjusted himself to his new surroundings at Usnay. Wearing academic 
stars proudly during the entire four year course, Denny constantly and uncomplain- 
ingly gave much of his time to help others who looked upon the magic of 2.5 from a 
much more dangerous point of view. Displaying a keen interest in almost any subject, 
he enjoyed handball, golf, and softball and was an avid Chicago Cubs rooter. Having 
all the fine traits of a good leader, he showed his best during his month on the Fourth 
Class Detail during Second Class summer and throughout his upperclass years.

The combination of a phenomenal case of hard luck and an inherent desire to always 
come up with a clever retort made Plebe year a rather steep hill for Jack to climb. 
Never once, however, did he consider the possibility of failure, for along with golf, 
Jack loved the Navy. Among the few things that he didn't like were the obstacle course 
and mechanical drawing. Jack's troubles ended with Plebe year, though, for people 
began to see him as he really is, so friendly that it is hard not to get along with him. 
With this, and a sincere appreciation for his profession, Jack is bound to become one 
of our nation's finer officers.

The Joliet Marine Reserve lost one of its most promising men when Ed shed his PFC 
stripes to enter the Naval Academy. The next time he dons Marine green it will be 
with gold bars. Combining Junior College with his job as sports writer for the Joliet 
Herald News, proved Ed's versatility as a scholar and writer. His major preoccupa- 
tions while at Navy Tech were football, writing letters to his One and Only in New 
Orleans and pad time. His friendly personality, combined with his love for good books 
and fine music, made "Bunny," as he is known around the Hall, an interesting person 
to know.

The submarine service will reap a rich harvest when Ron checks in at New London. 
Since his grade school days in Illinois, he was always interested in the Silent Service. 
A short submarine cruise gave him the first taste of what should be a long and useful 
career below the waters. A man of many talents, Ron maintained an academic average 
well within the top third of his class and yet devoted almost as much time to WRNV, 
the Radio Club and the Photo Club. Sportswise, he served as Plebe and varsity swim- 
ming manager on the battalion swimming teams and on a few company sports teams. 
"Benny," as he was known to his classmates, has effectively destroyed the myth 
about "fiery-tempered" redheads. 

Tom came to the Academy after two years at Lewis College of Science and Technology. 
The Naval Academy was not Tom's first experience with military life as he attended 
Marmion Military Academy during his high school days. After coming to the Academy, 
Tom was active in the Boat Club. Some people remember him as "Hard-aground," 
after a little battle he had with a yawl and the mud bottom of Horn Point. For sports, 
Tom enjoyed tennis and basketball, both of which he played in the intramural season.

Second Class summer meant quite a bit to Chuck whose main interest lies along the 
lines of Navy Air as a service preference. Even though his aviation summer was mostly 
spent at the Academy, he enjoyed flying the "yellow perils" across the river. His 
sporting interest was widely spread out and before entering the Academy he lettered 
three years in baseball. During his years here at the Academy, Chuck spent many of his 
weekends escorting visiting athletic teams as a member of the Reception Committee.

Chicago's Naval Reserve gave Jack his first taste of military life. Twenty-six months' 
service found Jack as an Aviation Technician Third Class when he was discharged to 
come to the Academy. This time had a profound effect since Jack is definitely going 
Navy Air. Service as electrician for WRNV, and Second Class representative of the 
Fifth Battalion for the Reception Committee occupied most of his free time. A great 
personality and officer-like qualities of the highest order, make Jack well liked.

Fred, better known as "Freck," prefaced his arrival at the Naval Academy by gradu- 
ating from high school and enlisting in the Navy. During fifteen months' service, he 
attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland. After ar- 
riving, he devoted much time to battalion and Brigade boxing. Fred also managed to 
find time for the German Club. Upon graduation, he hopes for a career in Navy Line. 

A little over four years ago Bob decided to leave the safe and secure existence at the 
University of Michigan for one he knew nothing about. For this decision, the Navy 
can be thankful as it gained another very capable officer. During his time here Bob 
gave his support and talents to backing his company as well as finding time for bri- 
gade activities. Among other things, Bob was an announcer for WRNV and a contrib- 
uting artist and cartoonist for the Splinter since his Youngster year. The Fleet can 
be proud to have Bob in their midst, but it's his hope to be looking down on the Fleet 
from a spot in the "wild blue."

Jack changed his "home-away-from-home" from Champaign to Annapolis after one 
year at the University of Illinois. In addition to his friendly nature, Jack became 
known for his constant and varied activities. He was an active member of the German 
Club, Drum and Bugle Corps, Concert Band, and Musical Clubs' Show, as well as a 
runner and all-around athlete. Besides all this he found time to do well in every other 
field at the Academy. He could always be relied upon for a cheerful word even when 
things were at their worst. Jack should be a real asset to Navy Air.

After leaving the Great Lakes Region and his home for the Academy, Jim soon ad- 
justed to Navy life and became a big success. His mimicry soon had the entire company 
"in stitches," a status prolonged throughout his four years at USNA. After a year of 
Plebe wrestling, he turned to the equally demanding task of varsity wrestling manager 
for the duration of his Academy sojourn. Always sports-minded, Jim also found time 
for company and battalion soccer. Despite so many activities, he became Trident 
Art Editor during First and Second Class years. Always a favorite to answer Plebe 
questions, Jim was just as popular with his classmates. When not writing to that 
Geneseo OAO, he could usually be found reading about his beloved submarines.

Academics at Navy were never an obstacle for Marty and he was thus able to spend 
much of his time on the more enjoyable things in life. His hobbies included music, 
sailing, record collecting and entertaining members of the opposite sex. In fact, if it 
were not for his hi-fi set, which took up much of his time, Marty would have been 
constantly dragging. Like a true sailor, he was an expert seaman and navigator. With 
his fine ability and great ambition, success will always knock on his door when he en- 
ters the Fleet. 



After a year of junior college, Don traveled East to further his education at the Naval 
Academy. Don claims that Plebe year furnished an excellent insight into the terrors 
of the Spanish Inquisition, but his perseverance carried him through. Like his Com- 
mander-in-Chief, Don is an avid golfer, and he could be seen on the golf course during 
many of the spring and fall weekends. Don had little trouble, academically, at the 
Academy and so spent much of his time at more enjoyable activities. A music lover by 
nature, he added his voice to the Chapel Choir each Sunday. During the week he could 
often be found listening to his record collection. A true sailor, Don is looking forward 
to a career in Navy Line.

A native of Illinois who came to USNA after a year at St. Joseph's College in Indiana, 
Bill absorbed the initial shock of Plebe year with a minimum amount of disfigurement. 
After trying his hand at fencing, Bill turned to intramural soccer and handball. "Con- 
dor," one of the brand names he picked up Plebe year, never failed to get a laugh or 
two at his own expense by means of a well-turned phrase. He was never one who ad- 
vocated physical over-exertion as attested by his love of the rack, a hand of bridge, or a 
chess game. He never missed a pre-game football rally or failed to take full advantage 
of post-game liberty.

When this particular Yankee came to Usnay, something changed. But as yet, neither 
Matt nor the Academy has suffered from the change. His ability with the books made 
it possible for him to gain stars by studying for short periods at long intervals, always 
with backgroud music by such "jazz" greats as Bach, Beethoven, and Sibelius. Always 
saying; "next week — we've GOT to get organized . . . ," he frequently aroused enough 
gumption to "do-it-himself." Never has a midshipman strived to stretch taps so far 
into the sleepless night, yet loathed reveille so much. All in all, Matt was quite a guy, 
so his choice of flying should lead to an interesting career.

Bill, a Navy junior, will be remembered as the Sixteenth Company's golf pro, since 
his dedication to the sport induced many of his classmates to take up the game. "Kell" 
was well known for his particular type of subtle humor, quiet temperament and sage 
advice to Plebes. Second only to golf, Bill considered studies as THE challenge, doing 
well in them while still reserving time for association with his classmates. His natural 
acuity and agreeability will lead him to continued success in the years to come. 

An avid sports fan and an academic cut, Eric could never be stumped on sports subjects 
or studies. He was also the first man to figure out the Skinny Department's "J" factor 
for solving problems Second Class year. By way of extracurricular activities, Eric was 
a staunch member of i P.O. Club, Concert Band, and Public Relations Committee. 
After graduation, he will be looking forward to a career in the air.

The straightest and shortest route from New Trier, on Chicago's North Shore, did not 
help Mick much, for he was as late as usual. It was not long, however, before he and the 
Academy started to conform to each other. Not a bookworm, he spent much of his 
time trying to improve his term average. After acquiring "Bohemian" ways during 
Youngster cruise in Scandinavia, Mick had a terrible time with girls. They were con- 
stantly pursuing him, yet he swears eternal bachelorhood. Rowing as a substitute for 
the fifth boat, Mick spent many a long afternoon behind an oar on the Severn. He looks 
forward with great anticipation to a long and successful career in the Navy's expanding 
submarine Fleet.

When Dick left his home he was careful to bring his smile and good humor with him. 
One of Senator Paul Douglas' appointees, he was never one to sit back and watch the 
world go by. A "ball of fire" on the company softball, soccer, and steeplechase teams, he 
proved his abilities often. A tour of duty as co-author of the Trident Magazine s 
"Sea Return" no doubt helped influence his decision to follow the career of an EDO. 
Just look around where there is something going on and you should find Dick.

Sigma Chi lost an outstanding member when Wayne came to the Academy. After a 
year on the University of Illinois campus, "Lock" quickly turned his intelligence, his 
ambition, and his personality to making an enviable record in both academics and 
extracurricular activities. He never let the rugged routine interfere with his social 
life and his sense of humor was enjoyed by all of his classmates, both "on and off the 
campus," as he so often puts it. Naturally, "The Koala Bear" prized his leave time 
highly, and his tales of good times in Kankakee kept us all going through the "dark 
ages." A career in Navy Line will find him as highly regarded by his future shipmates 
as he was by all who knew him at Annapolis. 

Coming directly from high school in the Windy City of Chicago, Larry soon realized 
what the service demanded of him. A good student with a natural ability to do the 
right thing at the right time and an ability to get along with people, he made the switch 
from civilian to midshipman quickly and smoothly. The more rigorous intramural 
sports, batt and company football, helped fill in his sporting hours at the Academy. His 
favorite pastime, when not engaged in sports, was enjoying music, his rack, and, most 
of all, looking forward to and planning for those short leaves. Always ready for a party, 
he really enjoyed the weekends and football trips. Larry's ready smile was an asset to 
him throughout his four years at the Academy and will help him immensely in the 
Fleet.

Only seventeen upon entering the Academy, Joe quickly adjusted to the routine of 
Plebe year and became an outstanding member of his class. Because academics came 
easily to him, he spent much of his time helping his company and battalion to many 
championships. During his leisure, Joe could quite often be found reading, with his 
favorite vocalist, Joni James, in the background. Four years at Navy have heightened 
Joe's interest in aviation, prompting hopes for a career as a Navy pilot as soon as 
possible. Good luck to Joe in his chosen future!

In the classroom, afloat, or anywhere that competition was found, Jack's confidence 
and determination made him tough to defeat. Drawn naturally by gymnastics, his 
daily hour in Macdonough Hall produced for Navy our first multi-apparatus athlete 
in years. The Olympics, a command at sea, and a distinguished career are goals he 
hopes to achieve. To many at the Academy he was a little Bismarck, to some he was 
just Little Bit, but to those who knew him well he will always be somewhat of a dreamer 
striding along with an eye to the sky.

Attending the Naval Academy was Ollie's main ambition as a youth, and upon gradu- 
ation he is looking forward to those gold wings of an aviator. Battalion football took a 
lot of his spare time, along with the daily workout on the blue trampoline, but aca- 
demics didn't leave him behind either. Rumor had it that he finished his First Class 
term paper during Youngster year. The air arm of the Navy will be gaining another 
eager pilot when Ollie enters Pensacola. 

Palmer, Bill that is, ventured to the Naval Academy after a memorable year at Wash- 
ington University in St. Louis. His terse experience in the AFROTC there, began his 
sincere liking of the military. At the Naval Academy, Bill's pitching ability gained 
rapid fame, as did his phenomenal knowledge of aircraft. Nothing, however, ran a close 
second to his favorite pastime; fast asleep during idle moments. All of Bill's friends will 
vouch that the Submarine Navy is gaining a valuable man as well as a fine individual.

A standout letter-winner in each of the three major sports in high school, John left 
these interests behind when he came to the Academy, and added rowing to his free 
time. From Plebe summer through graduation, "Pech" was a dyed-in-the-wool crew 
man, having traveled 4,000 miles without leaving the Severn. Active in crew during the 
fall, winter, and spring, he soon proved his worth and fast became almost as much a 
part of Hubbard Hall as Rusty Callow. Being both an "N" winner, a pretty "savvy" 
man with the academics, and a good friend, John rightfully deserves his place high in 
his class.

Piz came to Navy from Wood River High. At once he established himself as a man who 
could be depended upon to do a job and do it well. He ran on the company steeple- 
chase team and excelled on the company basketball team as well. Although Copen- 
hagen and London were fine, he chose Gitmo as his favorite port. Larry displayed 
unique patience and many of his return puns will never be forgotton. Everyone found 
"Old Piz" a very congenial person and one who always had a helpful word for everyone.

Guy's life as one of the "Men of Annapolis" was filled with many interesting and un- 
usual experiences, but not the type to appear on television. Since his favorite sport of 
horse racing was not offered in the sports program, he turned his talents to company 
squash, softball and battalion bowling. Guy's free time, exclusive of liberty hours, was 
spent with photography, card playing, and rack time. Good grades came easily to him, 
so he did not need too much time for studying. Despite the all out efforts of the Aca- 
demic and Executive Departments, Guy managed to put in four years with a minimum 
of effort and a maximum of laughs. 

During his short but worthwhile visit, Arnie labored extensively with his God-given 
talent of scoring well against the elusive academic departments. He and the Superin- 
tendent and his famed List were inseparable. Nor was he only heard by the professors, 
for at odd times during the week, his booming voice could be heard at the flick of a 
radio switch. He spent much of his extracurricular time as an announcer for WRNV. 
Not one to be lazy or unproductive on the sports field, he added to his company and 
battalion squads in football, track, and cross-country. If you care to watch, you will 
see why Arnie is sure to be a success.

the French Club and by his stage directorship of our Naval Academy productions. 
Robbie's ever-ready words of encouragement made many dreary day a great deal

Jack left his studies in mechanical engineering and his good times in Phi Delta Theta 
to come from the NROTC Unit at Illinois University to the Academy. A football and 
baseball star in high school, he ended his athletic career at the Academy with a knee 
injury suffered Plebe year. He still managed to sparkle in intramural sports. Jack did 
well academically with very little time spent studying, leaving him ample time to read 
and play bridge. He will certainly be as well liked by his fellow officers in Navy Line 
after graduation as he was by his many friends at the Academy.

It wasn't easy for Pete to shed his raccoon coat and pork-pie hat when he left the.Delt 
house at Old Purdue, but he wasted no time in launching a full career at Annapolis. It 
could hardly be said that this large, jolly Illinoisan was an introvert, for he never held 
back in exposing his radiant personality to all. "The Schooner" sang heartily in the 
Chapel Choir and in the Glee Club as well. Prior to a severe head injury, he played 
tackle on the Plebe football squad. His respectable academic average, however, never 
suffered because of this reversal. Despite incessant needling about his ability to change 
his mind, one thing seems very certain and that is a career in the Marine Corps. 

From the city of gangsters and beautiful girls, Mike came to Navy with an oar and a 
football under each arm. Having little success with academics, he found time to devote 
himself to varsity and battalion sports. After Plebe football, a knee injury kept Mike 
from the varsity so he stepped over to Hubbard Hall and stroked Navy's crew to 
several undefeated seasons. His serious determination on the field, and his quiet, easy 
going nature and modesty off the field won for him a host of lasting friends and femmes, 
as can be seen in the daily perfumed letters from all over the East Coast. When the 
occasion arises, we will serve with confidence under him.

year of background studies at the University of Illinois, he entered the Academy and 
achieved distinction in both his academic and military pursuits, adhering well to the 
high standards of the Academy. His competitive spirit and love of sports made him a 
stalwart on the company sports squads. Similarly, his love for liberty and a good time 
led to many enjoyable times for all who knew him. With his inherent qualities of leader-

Carl came to Navy immediately after graduating from high school. Although especially 
interested in math, law and medicine, his desire for the Navy over-whelmed these inter-

outside interests included Musette, studying law, building mathematical computers 
and the National Geographical Society. Because of his keen sense of humor and friendly 
personality, Carl's acquaintances will agree that he is probably one of the most likable 
guys ever to come to Usnay. Guided by his interest in the professional aspects of the 
Navy, Carl is bound to go places fast in the Fleet.

A typical mid- Westerner can be found in Whitey, for he is both soft-spoken and good-

found squash particularly to his liking and ability. His interest in hi-fi gave him a good 
background for the battle against the Skinny Department, as he always came out the 
winner. Another hobby, which has an affiliation with hi-fi, was the comfort of the rack. 
As for many, 0615 seemed to be the worst part of a day for him. His small size makes 
him suitable for life on the smaller type ship, which he hopes will be favorable as a 
career. 



Finding no opportunities open to a budding crewman in his hometown, Al came to

natured, friendly, and witty ways. All those who knew him could not help but respond 
to his dynamic personality. As for the women, well, they just did not make address 
books large enough. Bill plans on going into Naval Air after graduation and, with his 
many capabilities, is a sure bet for success.

success in his studies and proved no handicap at all in acquiring friends throughout the

activities were by far his speciality, as he was business manager of WRNV, the "Pop 
Concert Series," and was also on the Class Ring and Crest Committee. These activities 
often caused him to leave the rack in the wee hours of the morning to hit the books. A 
staunch rebel, he could give you a yell that left the walls of mother Bancroft shaking. 
Dave was truly a good natured guy, especially when it came to dragging the little

many a worried Plebe not to "sweat it." A promising future awaits him in Navy Air 
and the Fleet will be fortunate in getting a man of Dave's caliber.

had a smile and an encouraging word for everyone.

not to mention the many opponents that fell before them during their busy four years. 
That friendly smile, however, and a certain set of high standards remained with him 
and served as an inspiration to all he knew. During Plebe year many believed that Vic 
should be studying medicine for he could always be found with a text on that profession. 
Vic eventually decided, however, that his goal in life was to become a United States

really in top form at a party or dance. He also could be counted on for a well needed 
bit of advice or pat on the back. On the other hand, when a prank was to be played Bob 
was right in the middle of it. Marine Aviation is Bob's choice of service and the Corps 
can look forward to receiving a fine officer.

gender. Second Class summer in Pensacola proved to be a high point in his Naval ca- 
reer. Dick spent his Plebe and Youngster years wrestling on the Plebe and battalion 
teams, but found academics more challenging, as his steadily improving academic 
standing showed.

After spending two years in the Fleet as a radioman, Bill decided to enter the Academy 
via NAPS. Thus already familiar with Navy life, the transition imposed by Plebe year 
was taken in stride. Academics proved a real challenge and Bill could be found most 
often drawing knowledge from various sizes and shapes of books. There were, however, 
those spare moments when Bill could enjoy the three B's; baseball, basketball, and 
bowling. He rounded out his very busy day with a game of chess or by singing in the 
Catholic Choir. From here Bill knows not where the road will lead him, but the out- 
look is not bleak.

Larry came to the Academy with a quiet, friendly manner which won him many 
friends. An outdoor man, Larry's main hobbies are hunting and fishing. During his 
stay Larry lent his talents to the fencing and battalion track teams. He was also 
an active member of the Naval Academy Christian Association and served on the Coun- 
cil for two years. 

Upon graduation from high school, Bill attended Purdue University for one year. 
During his stay there he studied aeronautical engineering and participated in the 
AFROTC. Looking out over the sports field at the Academy it was always easy to pick 
out Bill as his red hair and athletic ability made him a standout. After a two year tus- 
sle with Italian, he found the academics not quite so hard to digest. Among his favor- 
ites were the St. Louis Cardinals, cards, women, and liberty. Bill made many new and 
lasting friends wherever he went and was always tops with the many who knew him.

Ski came to the Academy from the Hoosier state. Without a doubt his favorite pastime 
was sleeping. He did, however, participate in sports. If by chance you ended up in a 
sand trap on the seventeenth, you most likely would find him right beside you. Al- 
though he failed to earn his stars, Ski always managed a 3.0 average. Russian gave 
him a fight, but, P = I 2 R never fazed him in the least. His cap is tilted to the wild 
blue yonder and his will to learn makes his future bright and promising.

Carl, spending the first years of his life on a farm in Iowa, came to the Academy with 
the desire to try out a new way of life. His interest in music led him to join the Drum 
and Bugle Corps and he has since contributed much to its fine performances. In addition 
to music he was very active in the many sports that are offered. His friendly and en- 
gaging personality have won him many friends and promises him much success in his 
future career.

Jim's greatest dread was Bull. It always gave him a lot of trouble. While at the Academy 
he was on the varsity fencing team. He has an undying thirst for knowledge as exem- 
plified by his studying the Japanese and Russian languages as well as many technical 
fields while at Navy. Jim is very active in the sport of judo and was secretary of the 
Judo Club before it was dissolved. Navy Line will add another fine member to its 
ranks when Jim "goes down to the sea in ships."

Baldy came to the Naval Academy after two years at the State University of Iowa 
and a tour of duty as a white hat. In spite of the Bancroft Hall regime, Baldy remained 
a true individualist. His craving for fresh air proved to be the Waterloo of his room- 
mates but he more than made up for this with his perpetual cheerfulness, even during 
the "dark ages." Baldy's success in the military is assured by his ability to inspire 
confidence and by his desire to see a job well done.

John graduated from high school and enlisted in the Navy for a year and a half. While 
here at Navy, he was very active on the Lucky Bag, Class Register, and Trident Mag- 
azine staffs. In sports he chose the battalion level in sailing, fieldball, and softball. 
Along with all these activities John maintained grades that kept him in the upper 
quarter of the class, which usually meant Superintendant's List special privileges for 
him. John's interest and tenacity of purpose will stand him in good stead throughout 
his naval career. 

Gay arrived at the USNA after a one year tour of duty as an engineering student at 
Iowa University. Rough and ready in a fieldball game and fast in a handball court, he 
was a top notch intramural athlete. He was a true ladies man on the social scene, and 
is probably the only mid to ever find a beautiful girl at Gitmo. Navy Air will be the 
next stop in Gay's military career. We are sure he will make his mark in aviation as 
he has at USNA.

Carrying over the athletic drive from high school, Duck played squash for "Club 
Eleven" and the Third Batt during his USNA tour. He kept his eye steady during off- 
seasons through his avid membership in the Gun Club. His conscientious attitude 
brought him success in academics as well as athletics, placing him consistently in the 
top quarter of his class. Duck was never one to miss out on a good time and the par- 
ties, officers' clubs, liberty, duty hours, and extra pay observed during Second Class 
summer influenced him to give Navy Air a try.

After spending a year at Iowa State as a Sigma Chi, Dave developed a firm desire for 
a Naval career through the NROTC program there and packed his bags for USNA. 
He immediately began to prove his worth as a future Naval officer. His athletic ver- 
satility was proven in Plebe wrestling, intramural cross country, softball, and foot- 
ball. He showed a great deal of interest in WRNV and the Aeronautical Engineering 
Club. Dave was one of the leaders in his company, and will long be remembered by 
his classmates. His good natured attitude and winning personality are the type of 
traits that will be remembered by all.

Fresh out of the cornfields, Dave hit the Academy with blonde hair, blue eyes, home- 
spun tales and a good store of determination. Academics were no pushover for him 
and his famous saying was, "if I can do it, anybody can!" A hard Plebe year trans- 
formed the "ole Iowan" into a stern disciplinarian and a tall standing mid, well able 
to keep his classmates in good spirits. After giving his all to Plebe lightweight crew and 
company steeplechase, Dave retired to the ranks to scout femmes. Navy Air is going 
to have a proud addition. 

Gary came to the Academy fresh from a small town and his personality and friendli- 
ness rubbed off on many of his classmates. When not on the lacrosse field, he could be 
found playing football for the battalion. His plans after graduation include marriage 
and Navy Air. Gary's smiling face and friendly advice were always available to any- 
one. He sure had a knack for misplacing things, but always found them just before the 
bell. The little spare time he had was spent corresponding with his many friends.

area where its sounds were received with mixed sentiments. He set his horns aside 
long enough to slug it out on the company softball team and work the flying rings in 
battalion gymnastics. He has an eye to the sky in Naval Aviation.

Jud possessed many of the fine qualities of a naval officer, that others take years 
to develop. He was always setting his sights on a goal that he felt was just out of 
his reach. More than often he attained his objective whether it was in academics or 
varsity lightweight crew. Jud always worked hard, but always remained one of the 
regular guys. His amiable personality and determination will always be a credit to him 
and to his fellow officers in the Fleet.

After serving a hitch in the Navy, Kent came to Annapolis. His studies came quick and 
easy. During Plebe year, he spent most of his time trying to figure out how to outwit 
the upperclass, while the next three years were spent doing the same with the Exec- 
utive Department. By First Class year he had become very proficient. Football games 
and the parties afterwards were two things that Kent looked forward to. "Wine, women, 
and liberty" was his motto. After graduation he is headed to the Fleet. 

Iowa born Jim Martin, is perhaps one of the tallest, if not largest individuals from the 
state. This is probably the basis for his unusual nickname of "Heap." Jim spent quite 
some time being indoctrinated in military ways; two years at Culver Military Acad- 
emy and one year in the Army ROTC at Iowa State College. Perhaps his parents were 
surprised, especially his father who is an Army officer, to see him come to the Naval 
Academy. Jim, however, made the switch quite easily and has been following his for- 
mer congenial, easygoing ways, especially with the ladies. One of his most significant 
accomplishments during his time here was to become the managing editor of the '59 
Lucky Bag.

When a man is from a state as far inland as Iowa one would expect that he would have 
very little interest or knowledge in sailing. In Bud's case this was not so. He spent four 
years on the sailing team as one of its most fanatical backers. He was also an ardent 
fan of the black powder cap and ball muskets in the Gun Club. Bud's versatility was 
well demonstrated by his work in the Antiphonal Choir for four years. Bud looks for- 
ward to a career in the Silent Service.

This husky Iowan was noted for his way with women. Glenn never seemed to have any 
trouble finding a local belle to drag. The reason, of course, lies in his likable personality, 
which showed itself in his ability to get along with everyone. During his years at the 
Academy he was a standout on the company football team and a consistent winner of 
the shot put event for the battalion track team. We all wish Glenn the best of luck in 
his aspiration to become a wearer of the coveted Navy wings of gold.

Cedar Rapids' contribution to the Naval Academy spent two years in the Navy before 
entering the Academy. The switch from enlisted man to middie was easy for Frank 
and before long he became a link in the big Navy chain. Plebe year he earned the nick- 
name "Hunk" which he will have a hard time shaking in the years to come. He could 
cheer up one by his cheerful attitude and spirit. As far as sports went, Frank could 
play anything well as seen by his contributions to Plebe track, battalion football, 
wrestling and company volleyball. After graduation he plans to be a prime factor in 
strengthening our air arm. 

Toby came to us with a love for the sea, and kept it throughout his four years here. He 
found expression for this love with the Academy sailing squadron, in which he was 
active for four years, sailing on several Ocean Races during that time. In addition, he 
tried his hand at Brigade boxing, batt football and BAC, making him an exceptionally 
well-rounded individual. Toby will always be remembered as somewhat of an operator 
while at the Academy, and wherever he goes, he will be known for his ability and will- 
ingness to put his ingenuity to work for the Service. Toby's eyes are set on subs after 
graduation.

Grant came to Navy from the great mid-West. He soon proved to everyone that he was 
eager to learn as was shown by his numerous appearances on the Superintendent's List. 
Although he spent many hours with the books, Grant still found time to row varsity 
crew for three years after an outstanding Plebe year on the water. He enjoys dancing 
and is fond of a good sociable weekend. Never one to waste time, he hopes to keep 
busy as a Naval Line Officer.

Soon after graduating from high school, Jerry made his way from Downs to start his 
naval career. He did not wait long to start making his mark here at the Academy. 
Plebe summer he joined the Drum and Bugle Corps and was a credit to it all four 
years. Jerry found enough time between the company card game and western novels to 
pull sat in everything. He also found time to try a variety of intramural sports num- 
bering no less than nine. Jerry's good work here is just a preview of his coming naval 
career.

When George arrived at Gate Three for the first time, he brought with him a sincere 
desire to build the strong foundation necessary for thirty years in the Fleet. This de- 
sire was strengthened by Youngster cruise. A usually quiet and ha.d-working person, 
he claimed the "blue trampoline" as his major sport. All other activities were secondary 
except for the game he played after the first away football tilt each year. An excep- 
tional Bull student, George loved to read all sorts of things including advertisements 
offering free literature and home samples on request. With all his talents George will 
be a success in each of his endeavors.

Dale" wasn't satisfied with only academic honors, he also excelled in the field of ath- 
letics. After trying his hand at gymnastics Plebe year, he gave it up and decided to 
stick to lacrosse and starving himself for 150-pound football. If Dale's good natured 
smile and willingness to help out a classmate are still with him in Pensacola, we know 
that he will do as well in Navy Air as he did here.

K.U. and Phi Gamma Delta missed a good bet when they let "Willie-B" slip away to 
Annapolis. Bill came to the Academy from his studies in mechanical engineering and 
Air Force ROTC. An eleven letter winner at Cawker City High School, Bill starred in 
baseball, basketball, football, and track. Though an active member of the Gun and 
French Clubs, and the Antiphonal Choir, Bill still found time to make the Superin- 
tendent's List and continue his athletic pursuits as a half-miler on the varsity track 
team. Upon graduation, Bill plans to embark on a career in Naval Aviation, where he 
is sure to be as big a success as he has been at the Academy.

George came straight from high school to the Academy. Water was nothing new to 
him and Plebe year saw him on the swimming and dinghy sailing teams. He worked 
fdr the Lucky Bag as advertising manager and was a member of the Boat Club and 
Reception Committee. He, nevertheless, managed to star and stay on the Superin- 
tendent's List. When George wasn't dragging blind, he was happily smoking his pipe 
and listening to hi-fi music. Never let it be said that Kansas could not produce good 
salt water sailors.

Deciding that the wheat fields of Kansas held no interest for anyone but devoted farm- 
ers, Jerry decided to leave for Annapolis and a career in the air after spending one year 
at Kansas State University. An ardent tennis enthusiast, it was an easy job to find him 
as he was usually only a "stone's throw" out on the courts swinging a mighty racket. 
He did much to place the First Battalion high in the standings in tennis. Jerry's inter- 
ests in women and music will soon be subordinated, as he will take to the air.

Coming to the Naval Academy from an outstanding high school where he majored in

breakers in the maze of Skinny lab. Though at times he was confused by Naval meth- 
odology, his wheat field stride gave him an air of having spent weeks at sea. Known 
throughout the Brigade for his devotion to religious ideals, Don had zeal and a one 
track mind which should stead him well throughout his career.

Hailing from the tiny village of Mission, Jack came to the Naval Academy after a 
tour with the Marine Corps, firmly and rightly convinced that he had left the best 
branch of the service. Having established a new record for rack time early in Young- 
ster year, he proceeded to rouse himself long enough to earn a set of stars. His winning 
manner with the Fourth Class was surpassed only by his influence with the weaker 
sex. In spite of Jack's affinity for the pad, it seems inevitable that he will find enough 
time to become a first rate officer in the Marine Corps.

John was well known for his athletic ability, having participated four years in football

academics by starring each year. His ability to make friends placed him in high esteem 
among his classmates. On weekends when John wasn't engaged in athletic contests, he 
could usually be found in the company of a young lady. After graduation he intends to 
earn his wings and go on to postgraduate work and a career in the Navy.

After coming to Annapolis, "Yeag" lost little time in acquainting himself with the

sports gained a helping hand when he went out for the football and soccer teams. "Fix 
me up, Yeag" was a familiar cry around the Twelfth Company, for he had quite an 
assortment of addresses. His literary talent and humor will be a great asset to the 
Supply Corps upon graduation.

From the famous State of Kentucky, the Naval Academy added another sterling mem- 
ber to the Class of '59. Kent, fair-haired and studious, quickly accustomed himself to 
his new military surroundings. It was with much finesse and personality that he warded 
off the constant hecklings about his newly acquired habit of wearing shoes. A good 
sportsman, he loved to be in there fighting when athletics rolled around in the after- 
noon. And of course, like all good mids, Kent proved himself worthy of the title of a 
"ladies' man." A true Navy Air man, it is many a Plebe who suffered at his hands due 
to a lack of knowledge about planes.

Don, the Kentuckian with the dimples, will long be remembered as one of the nicest 
guys we've known. Although he didn't play on any varsity teams, he was always a val- 
uable asset on any company team in any sport and his staunch enthusiasm could be felt 
when any Navy team was playing. He was also a great party lover and firmly believed 
that all leaves should be filled with a maximum of fun, an idea which he accomplished 
every time he left the halls of USNA. With his spirit and love of life for the service, 
we're sure that Don is destined for great things after his apprenticeship here.

After a year of college and fraternity life at the University of Louisville, Jim came to 
the Academy to launch his naval career, which we are sure will continue to be as success- 
ful after graduation as it was here at USNA. An avid sports fan, Jim spent his after- 
noons on the lacrosse fields where he played for four years. Jim's ability to charm the 
ladies enabled him to have a good looking girl next to him at all social functions. Always 
one to have a good time, Cull's dynamic personality was an asset at any gathering or 
during any leave. The Academy will deeply miss this smiling Irishman. 

Larry came to us straight from a successful four years at Valley High. Bent on a career 
in the Marine Corps, he was soon talked out of living in a fox hole and became a staunch 
advocate of Navy Line after Tramid. He was always known as a top man in '59 but his 
private life never seemed quite as squared away as his professional one. Larry was 
seldom seen in the pad in the afternoon. He had more than the usual drive on the 
athletic field and always turned in a good performance at whatever he tried. He will 
always be remembered as a good guy who managed to stand at the top of his class. 
Wherever he goes for duty, he will always be an asset to the service.

Houg came to the Naval Academy after spending a year in the NROTC at the Univer- 
sity of Louisville. In the true style of a Southerner, he could be relied upon as a ready 
speaker in any discussion about the Civil War, especially when a Yankee was involved. 
Although academics presented no great obstacle, anytime he returned from a particu- 
larly "snowy" day in Skinny, Houg could always be counted on for his most appro- 
priate question of "why?" Always the object of many comments about his native 
Kentucky and jokes about his "slight" build, Houg maintained his ready sense of 
humor throughout his four years.

After leaving his home port of Dayton for a year at the University of Kentucky, Jim 
showed up with a big grin and assorted abilities for that four-year battle with Bancroft. 
As if to prove that a little guy sure can get around, "Lump" added his might to the 
battalion track, company cross-country, steeplechase, soccer, and volleyball teams. If 
you happened to stumble into the depths of Mahan Hall during one of our stage pro- 
ductions, you'd find Jim and the Make-Up Gang doing their best to undo what Mother 
Nature did. And, when it came to dragging — well, the little guy sure got around. 

D. J. came to the Academy after finishing high school in the Blue Grass State. He 
could always be found in his room either sleeping or writing to a girl. In his four years 
at the Academy he was the backbone of the Fifth Company cross-country and steeple- 
chase teams. His jokes and fighting spirit kept the team alive and led them to many 
victories. He is a great guy and will be a success in life because he puts his all into 
everything he does.

and the lovelies. Reg leaves us to become the first airborne roadrunner, if Navy Air 
doesn't object.

Kentucky claims this future admiral who journeyed from south of the Mason Dixon

mechanical drawing gave him little trouble. Always one to enjoy a good laugh, Lowell 
could usually be counted on to liven a conversation. He will take his friendly personality

One of his prime manias is a weakness for music. 



Two years in Kappa Sigma at the University of Kentucky, prior to coming to Annapo-

four-year manager of the Plebe and varsity rifle teams and a member of the Gun Club. 
In addition, he worked on the Log staff" during Second and First Class years, and 
sailed a season with the Royono crew. Despite two years of AFROTC, Matt plans to

cover Hugh's sentiments toward his homestate. His persistently smiling face and his 
keen worth will see him far following his few years at Annapolis.

Plebe, but he was probably better known for his rendition of "Marching Through 
Georgia" at the table. For the next three years, his B-robe with the gold numerals and 
letters, won at varsity tennis and squash, was a familiar sight in the Twenty-fourth

Jim, whose subtle humor kept his classmates in a happy frame of mind, came to Navy 
after spending two years at Springhill College in Mobile, Alabama. He carried on, 
true to his heritage and background, the pride and joy of the last remaining threads 
of the great Confederacy. Although Jim wasn't a charter member of the Superintend- 
ent's List, he was thoroughly educated in the art of gymnastics. After Plebe year 
disappointments because of broken bones, he settled down to a hard athletic schedule 
and eventually mastered the flying rings for the varsity gym team. After graduation, 
Jim is sure to have smooth sailing and happy hunting in the Fleet. 



The Solid South yielded a son as dependable as itself when "Big John" headed north 
from the bayou country to what appeared to be a Yankee stronghold in Annapolis. 
His bright smile and effervescent personality quickly won the respect and friendship 
of his classmates. A sunny Southern nature is illustrated by his favorite pastime, re- 
laxing in the rack with a good book in hand. A real athlete, a great fellow and a ter- 
ror to all Plebes are but a few qualities of this Southern gentleman. The Fleet will 
surely welcome him as a likeable shipmate and a capable officer.

Norm came to Navy Tech from Berwick Academy. Although academics weren't al- 
ways readily understood, he found them exciting, thanks to the "j-factor." During 
his four years here Norm participated in cross country and battalion soccer. He lived 
for Christmas leave in order that he might take to the slopes on his skis. A true Eastener, 
he always insisted that the King's English was the only way to speak. It wasn't until 
Second Class summer and Pensacola that Norm knew Navy Air was to be his goal.

Robie began his midshipman career as an old salt straight from the Fleet. His elec- 
tronics rate proved invaluable in Second Class Skinny, the Waterloo of many. Through- 
out his four years, an instance cannot be found of his failing to aid anyone in any manner 
possible. Not one able to claim an easy Plebe year, Robie strove as an upperclass- 
man to help Plebes with their questions and other troubles, knowing full well the 
trials of his first year. His hobbies were women, wine, and song with an ambition to 
fly Navy jets. We have no doubt that someday he will wear the cherished wings. 





JONATHAN M. WAINWRIGHT 

Seventh Company 
Nobleboro 

At Annapolis Jon was the silent type. He was serious and had a realistic outlook on life. 
His best characteristics were his dependability and frankness. When he said something 
you knew it to be true and sincere. His sports interests had wide variety in Brigade 
boxing, crew, steeplechase, and 150 pound football. After leaving the Academy he 
plans to be a submariner and will have the opportunity to make another Jonathan M. 
Wainwright famous.

The transition from civilian life to life at the "Trade School" was a fairly easy one for 
Bob because of his previous two years of submarine training with the reserves. He 
seemed to like just about everything he did during his four years here, especially the 
sub cruises during the summer. He made many friends and took the toughest problems 
in stride. During the athletic seasons, Bob was invariably found on either a battalion 
or company soccer field with a little recreational squash squeezed into his spare time. 
His only dislike seemed to have been the great distance he had to travel to get home 
during leaves, all nine miles of it.

Having been born into a Navy family, Dave has been associated with the Navy all 
his life. As with all Navy Juniors, he never stayed in one place for any long period of 
time. He especially enjoyed living in Naples, Italy, and became quite fluent in the Ital- 
ian language. Dave came to the Academy from Northwestern High School. During 
his four years at the Academy, he could usually be found working over a few football 
players in the wrestling loft. The weekends generally found him at a Drag House or 
out on the Bay sailing. His quick wit and smile make him a favorite of all his com- 
patriots and he is sure to be an asset to any branch of the Navy.

Dan came directly to the Academy and retained the variety of interests he acquired in 
high school. Here he participated in many different sports and extracurricular activi- 
ties. He played 150 pound football, squash, cross country, and softball for the Second 
Company. He also took part in the Italian and Electrical Engineering Clubs and was 
responsible for the procurement of the 1959 Ring Dance orchestra. Dan always did 
well in his academics and was a member of the Superintendent's List. Desiring de- 
stroyer duty, he plans to enter Navy Line upon graduation and to enter Naval Aviation 
later on. 





KENT S. BROMWELL 

Twenty-first Company

Kent captured the Navy spirit when only a small boy. He greeted it as it marched 
through the streets of Baltimore and soon found himself behind our walls. He portrayed 
this same spirit daily in his second home at USNA and in the natatorium, where he 
swam for four years. A member of Navy's varsity swimming team, Kent was also close- 
ly associated with battalion swimming in the fall and a charter member of varsity 
water polo in the spring. Known for his warming laugh, winning smile, and friendly 
personality, Kent's a guy one just does not forget.

Fred saw his hopes materialize as he entered the Naval Academy in June of '55. He 
did exceptionally well in all phases of life at the Academy. Having an excellent sense 
of humor and a quiet easy-going manner he made and kept friends easily. During the 
spring and fall Fred could be found on the soccer field each afternoon and on weekends 
he was generally at a hop, on a knockabout, or at a local theatre with his girl. As he 
was on the Superintendent's List he had no trouble with studies and will put his knowl- 
edge to good use in the Navy after graduation. Fred's patience and ability will stand 
him in good stead in all that he does in the years to come.

Murray is the oldest of four "Army Brats" who have lived anywhere from Bogota, 
Colombia to Tokyo, Japan. He says, "There's nothing like it, I couldn't stand to live 
in one place now if I had to." An outdoor man, some of Murray's hobbies and sports 
are swimming, boating, fishing, hunting, artistry, and women. Murray came to us 
here at USNA from nearby Severn School, having spent two years there. After gradu- 
ation he plans on duty at Pensacola, and the earning of his wings as a Navy pilot. 



WILLIAM G. CLAUTICE

Laughing, full of fun and possessing a sincere devotion to duty best depicts Bill. During 
his four years on the Severn this lad found himself singing baritone in the Chapel 
Choir, burning the midnight oil as business manager for our Ring Dance, and dragging 
many a pretty young miss, while discharging one of his duties as our battalion hop 
representative. A lacrosse stick was Bill's favorite piece of sports' gear in the fall and 
spring. During the spring he was the outstanding end on the company football team. 
The Silent Service will indeed receive a very welcome addition in Bill. His achievements 
and capabilities should make the men of the dolphins justly proud of him. 




166 




The one characteristic that typifies Bill, and, perhaps gives an insight into his untiring 
personality is his ability to do without sleep. About mid-way through Youngster year, 
beleaguered on one side by academics and intramural sports and on the other side by a 
deep interest in speaking and writing, he found that the day was just not long enough. 
His roommates unhappily attest to the fact that his pre-reveille speech and article 
writing were a strain, not only on Bill, but on them as well. Second Class year he 
added to his already full schedule the job of Biography Editor of the Lucky Bag. The 
habits acquired by his activities on the Trident, the Lucky Bag, the batt lacrosse team 
and the Forensic Activity, together with those he brought with him from Baltimore 
Poly are expected to do him good service in the Fleet.

One look at the top of Bill's locker told quite a story. It was an unholy conglomera- 
tion of lacrosse gear. Bill was often seen hustling on the varsity midfield, as he did on 
McDonough's team back in his high school days. Athletics were not Bill's only proj- 
ects. He spent most of his study hours writing that letter and making arrangements 
for the weekends. It was not uncommon to see him toting his trombone and playing 
in the Concert Band. Navy Line looks mighty fine to Bill, but his heart is in the clouds. 
His course is headed for a year at sea and then to Pensacola. 





CARL D. CORSE,

JR- 



Carl came to USNA from the suburbs of Washington after spending some time at 
Bullis Prep. His favorite intramural sport at the Academy was squash even though he 
did as well at steeplechase and as a pitcher for the A Softball team. Almost every week- 
end found him dragging, and during the week days he could be found in a phone booth 
talking to his OAO. His favorite sport while not at the Academy was water-skiing. 
His liking for flying or talking about subs portends a visit to Pensacola or New Lon- 
don, where his record assures a successful tour.

Many times during Paul's younger years he took trips to the Academy from Silver 
Springs. It was no surprise, therefore, when he made his decision to become a part of 
the Naval Service. Seldom does one find, within the walls of the Academy, a man who 
enjoys life as much as Paul. Everyone who was acquainted with Paul found him very 
easy-going and cheerful. If one was looking for a bridge partner or for a game of crib- 
bage he was always there. Paul has his sights set high and, with his great ability and 
dynamic personality, he should have little trouble achieving his goals.

Walt, also known as "Deets," has lived in many cities and, although born in California, 
claims Annapolis as his home. During his stay at the Academy, he gave his talents to 
the Juice Gang and his swimming ability to the water polo team. His ability to ani- 
mate a story adds much color to his conversations. All who know him will agree that 
Walt is a fine competitor through and through. When asked about his plans for the 
future, he will always answer that he is a career Navy man. 

Born in Conway, Arkansas, Bill is a true southern gentleman. His desire to see every- 
thing there is to see has carried him far and wide. As an ardent sports lover, one could 
usually find him grinding the cinders at Thompson Stadium with the varsity track 
team. Bill's artistic talents proved a great asset to our Class Ring and Crest Committee. 
He also did some excellent work for the Brigade Activities Committee. Bill's logic and 
perseverance should solve any problem the future may hold for him.

"Elf" comes to the city by the Severn from Bethesda. In high school and prep school 
he was very interested in basketball. Since his arrival at USNA he seems to have given 
up athletic endeavors for more peaceful pastimes. His ready wit made him many friends 
and will serve him well after graduation. His small size gives him a distinct advantage 
as he goes sliding through the submarine compartments.

Mike is one of those among us who enjoyed the privilege of being right at home at the 
Academy. Although he was born here and his family now resides in Annapolis, he has 
seen a great deal of the world and knows from experience what Navy life is like. His 
favorite pastimes were working with the Drum and Bugle Corps and playing basket- 
ball. Studies never gave Mike a rough time and he was always ready and able to give 
his classmates a helping hand. With his experience and desire for the Navy, Mike is 
a sure bet to carry on the Fitzgerald name in the Navy.

Paul, an Army Brat, came to the Academy from Wilson High School via Sullivan's 
Prep, in Washington, D. C. During his four years Paul displayed his athletic ability 
on the intramural sports field, particularly in steeplechase in which he often brought 
home top honors. A conscientious student, he should go far in a career in whatever 
field he chooses. At the present he is trying to decide between Navy Line and the 
Marines. Paul will always be remembered by his classmates and friends for his ready 
smile and willingness to help others. 

Harry came to us from the suburbs of Baltimore and immediately was dubbed with 
nicknames of Baron or Bulldog. Entrance to the Naval Academy for him was merely a 
continuation of military schooling. Budgeting his time among his interests at the 
Academy proved quite a problem. He participated in the Drum and Bugle Corps, Con- 
cert Band, Antiphonal Choir, Masqueraders, and French Club. In addition, Harry 
has a literary talent which was shown by several Trident Society awards for poetry. 
Perhaps the most noteworthy of these honors was his Second Class year appointment 
as Fiction Editor of Trident.

Jim is truly an Irishman with a typical temper and just enough brawn to make it 
impressive. Born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and having attended Western Maryland 
College for two years, Jim now claims for his home the fair city of Annapolis. Football 
was his big interest Plebe year while his later athletic contributions were to battalion 
lacrosse and company fieldball. The German Club was his major extracurricular inter- 
est. Since Marine Corps Aviation seems to be his predominant service choice, it's off 
to the "boon docks" for Jim.

Denny is one of those fortunate few who succeeds in everything he tries. An excel- 
lence in academics and athletics was brought with him from high school. Devoted 
primarily to mathematical courses and lacrosse, he always found time to enjoy the 
weekends. Relaxing to hi-fi music, a fishing trip, or a trip to Philadelphia were pas- 
times he avidly pursued. A conscientious student and a friend to all who knew him, 
Denny looks forward to an engineering career in the Navy.

A true native of the Chesapeake Bay area, Buck proved to be a master of sailing tech- 
niques, sea-stories, and the intricacies of Baltimore social life. Since academics posed a 
small problem, he found ample time to participate in the Glee Club and the annual 
Musical Club Shows. A serious career man, Buck pursued his military tendencies 
effusively. Replete with more professional questions than the meagre two-year asking 
period could possibly drain, he quickly became the bane of the average Plebe mentality. 
Above all else, however, Buck will be remembered as one of those rare individuals who 
spent less time in the pad than he did out of it. 

It was but a short trip for Fred from Baltimore to the Navy life. The Thompson Sta- 
dium track soon felt the fleeting imprint of his spiked shoes, which was to last for three 
seasons each year. Maryland high school record books will attest to his running ability. 
Plebe year took its course and Youngster year he found time for dragging between 
races and studying for Bull quizzes. None of his friends have ever regretted being near 
Baltimore and many were the enjoyable times at the Marchs' home. Fred's quick 
wit and quiet manner have made many friends and will make many more in years to 
come.

Upon graduation from Severn School, Carl entered the USNA via the Naval Reserve 
to achieve his goal of becoming a Naval aviator. He was best known for his avid pas- 
sion for rhythm and blues music, which could be heard echoing from his room any time 
of the day. When not listening to music, Carl could be found handling a lacrosse stick, 
rowing in a shell on the Severn or playing football. His daily schedule was interrupted 
by studies which he seemed to comprehend quite easily.

Van came to the Academy from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. His favorite pastime 
was sailing, a sport which he continued at the Academy by spending most of his time 
aboard the Royona. In the winter he worked out with the company steeplechase team. 
Another holdover from his days in Baltimore was lacrosse, which he played during the 
spring of Plebe year on the battalion team. Van's easy going manner and disposition 
made him the man to see when a party was in the offing. He plans to go Navy Line 
with preference for the Submarine Service.

Coming to the Academy as a graduate of Baltimore Polytechnic, Ev accepted academ- 
ics as a means of obtaining his ends but valued highly his free time and confined his 
athletic endeavors to lacrosse. All forms of relaxation rated highly with "O" but the 
ladies took precedence. Seldom did a weekend pass that he missed escorting a lovely 
lass around Crabtown. He did a great deal of work for the Log in his four years with 
the sports department, although the Bull Department sometimes questioned his literary 
merit. Characteristic of Ev was his hard work and devotion to the things he enjoyed. 
A sea going role beckoned, and Ev laid his future plans with the Line NaVy. 

Frank entered the Academy after a year at Columbian Prep and Plebe year saw him 
earning his numeral's in football and lacrosse. Unfortunately, the rigid academic pro- 
gram at USNA brought a halt to his desire to continue his athletic adventures as he 
had differences with the Dago and Math Departments. Always close to his parents, 
he seemed to get that boost he needed by encouragement from his folks when things 
got tough. His classmates will always remember him for his ready smile and helping 
hand.

Hailing from nearby Frederick, Bruce was but a hop, skip, and a jump from the Acad- 
emy. He was one of the top men in his class, as he stood high in both academics and 
aptitude. He and the Superintendent's List became good friends. In addition to these 
accomplishments, he was a stalwart in intramural athletics. Bruce's warm personality 
and ability to adapt himself should carry him a long way in his career as a Navy Line 
officer.

"Schnaff" came to Navy from the Frederick Farmland after a two year stay at Bullis 
Prep. A true Marylander at heart, he couldn't leave his home state to seek the higher 
laurels of knowledge, mainly because he loved the life of a mid and the healthy climate 
on the Bay. All sports appealed to Pat with football, basketball, and baseball on the top 
of his list. Football was always his favorite and during his four year stay here, he played 
guard for the batt team and was a main cog for the Eighteenth Company heavyweights. 
After graduation Pat will join the ranks of the Navy Line boys, and then it's off to New 
London and a future in submarines.

Neal, a stranger to many in his company, is no stranger to the hills of the cross country 
course or to the cinders of Thompson Stadium. He was one of the few men who ran 
all year. Since his arrival at the Academy he made himself one of the finest distance 
men in Navy's history. When Neal wasn't running he might be found "resting his 
back" in his pad. If not there you might have found him with one of his many drags, 
exploring the N Club room. In the future we see "Smuff" somewhere in the clouds 
wearing the wings of a Naval aviator. 

A two-year student at Johns Hopkins, Smitty proved to be quite a match for the 
academic departments who soon tired of its unsuccessful efforts to send him down and 
reluctantly conceded that someone had to pass the quizzes. He won something of a 
reputation for outwitting the Executive Department as well. During the spring and 
fall he could always be seen out on the lacrosse field. He was also a year round member 
of the Newman Club. A native of Baltimore, there were few weekends that Smitty did 
not drag. His Naval Academy record predicts success whatever his chosen branch of 
the Navy may be.

Many summers spent on the waters in the Chesapeake Bay country proved a valuable 
background when Bill arrived at Navy Tech. Claiming Baltimore, the site of many of 
our away football games, as his home town, Bill especially enjoyed the Cinderella 
liberty after the games. Perhaps this was the source of his effervescent sense of humor 
which kept him in constant demand Plebe year and caused him to be dubbed "Sun- 
shine" by many of his friends. In addition to sailing, Bill was a member of the battalion 
swimming team, and the Plebe and varsity track teams. After graduation, Bill plans to 
join the ranks of Navy Line.

The minute you spotted Sam's friendly smile, you realized that he was one of those 
easy-going mids. Never one to "sweat the course," he went through Plebe year glee- 
fully. Sam made an appearance every Sunday morning with the Chapel Choir. He 
liked his music classical or semi-classical and when he wasn't listening to records, he 
was busy trying for a position on Navy's soccer team. Sam's future interest is in sub- 
marines.

Pete's sojourn at the Academy was highlighted by his interest in three activities; leave 
in Washington D.C., guitar music, and women. His efforts at duplication of the musical 
style of George Van Eps was enjoyed by many in the NA 10. Pete's guitar, along with 
his wife's bongo drums and a little spontaneous Plebe choreography, added much light 
to the "dark ages." In the future Pete hopes to go into Navy Line. Four long years at 
the Academy have left him eagerly awaiting his chance to wear that big stripe in the 
Fleet. 

A typical Navy Junior, Hollie has lived in many parts of the country. After entering the 
Naval Academy he continued his role as an outdoor man by participating in sailing. 
When not on the Bay he could usually be found on the handball courts or in the Natato- 
rium. Occasionally he still boasts of having been a member of the Brigade champion- 
ship water polo team. Taking advantage of a home in the Annapolis vicinity, he usually 
spent his weekends with his OAO. Upon graduation, Hollie plans to continue his family 
military tradition by serving as a Navy Line officer.

Being a Navy Junior, it is hard to say where Walt really hales from. Old Zitz, known 
to many for his extreme quietness and subtle humor was never one to clutch except 
for that time during Plebe year when he removed his Youngster stripe from his number 
three blue service in order to make watch squad inspection in a pressed uniform. Here 
was a mid in the finest sense of the word. For his friendly ways, Walt will long be 
remembered by the many friends he made at the Academy.

Bob came to the Academy after having served a year in the Marine Corps. A native of 
Arlington, Massachusetts, Bob is a hockey enthusiast. As hockey is not one of the 
nineteen varsity sports, he played on the company soccer and heavyweight football 
teams. On weekends, Bob was busy either with the Reception Committee, golf or 
dragging. His enthusiasm and good humor are sure to bring him success in the military 
service.

Putting aside an NROTC scholarship and the joys of college fraternity life, Bob left 
his New England home to accept his appointment at USNA. Showing his proficiency 
in academics, Bob found time to pursue the fairer sex and to excel in varsity track and 
cross country. His observance in these activities was rivaled only by his active imagina- 
tion and clever wit, which were a constant source of amusement to his classmates. Bob 
spent his summer leaves mountain climbing in New Hampshire, sailing on the Great 
Lakes, and traveling halfway across the continent to broaden his "social experience." 
With four years of USNA behind him, Bob stands ready as a worthy addition to Navy 
Line.

George's education was broken up into thirteen changes of schools from coast to coast 
including one "glorious year" in Gitmo, and ending in Provincetown, Massachusetts in 
1954. Prior to entering the Academy he spent a year at Sullivan Preparatory School in 
Washington D.C. He is an accomplished electric guitarist who has frequented New 
York airwaves with his own studio produced multiple recordings "a la Les Paul." He 
holds two music copyrights, a radio license, and has written a textbook on magnetic 
recording. His article on "Artificial Reverberation" has been published in a leading 
radio journal. His knowledge of music, electronics, and tape recorders will surely be a 
great contribution to entertainment aboard ship.

Not two weeks after his high school graduation, J. J. found himself enclosed within the 
walls of Annapolis. Taking things in stride, during his four years at Navy, he brushed 
off his extra duty and disappointments with a smile. Dividing his time between 150 
pound football and the sack, J. J. lettered for the "Mighty Mites" three consecutive 
years. With the exception of engineering drawing and a few math courses, studies were 
no big problem to him and he had little trouble keeping the grades above 2.5. A keen 
understanding of others, an infectious wit, the ability to make the best of any situation, 
and the help he gave others in lightening their burdens will always be remembered. 

One of the finer of New England's products, it was quite natural for Don to come to 
Navy. He was sailing before he learned how to walk, or so he would have you believe; 
his early experience starting on the coast of Maine. A hard worker at all times he earned 
his success in all of the varied fields in which he has dabbled. To be in the lower half 
of anything is not to his liking. Academics were a personal challenge to Don and he 
delighted in mastering them. A user of every minute, he plans his time well especially 
his weekends on the Eastern Shore.

Though not one of the bigger men around the Yard, Lou held his place on the crew 
team as a top coxswain. Before he became interested in the streamlined whaleboats, 
he tried his skill at batt and Plebe wrestling. One of those on the Superintendent's 
List, he was a good man to "get the gouge" from. The humor and news columns of 
"Blackjack 11" are a few more checks in his credit list here at the Academy. An oc- 
casional pipe and some slow, quiet music provided his relaxation at the end of the day.

Jim was always ready and willing to put in a good word for New England. He was a 
true ladies' man for he rarely missed a hop in three years. When he wasn't dragging or 
thinking about it, he could usually be found pulling a heavy oar for Rusty Callow's 
crew. His main ambition is to return to the Academy as head of the Steam Department 
in order to fire all of the Steam profs and blow up Isherwood Hall. Then he would be 
able to get even with them for all of those epicyclic gear trains and basic steam cycles 
that he could never quite figure out.

Arriving at Navy straight from high school, Strut soon found sailing to his liking. After 
getting his yawl command Plebe summer, he spent many of his afternoons and week- 
ends on the Academy's yawls. His many and diversified interests included the Foreign 
Relations and Marine Engineering Clubs and the Political Economy Club of which 
he was secretary. On many Saturday afternoons he could be found at a tea fight, col- 
lecting a volume of addresses. Although he rarely dragged the same girl twice, he was 
never the recipient of a brick. Strut's interest in his profession mark him as a future 
success in his career. 

It is very difficult to sum up the many outstanding qualities of this man. After three 
years as a "blue jacket," Frank came to the Academy and set a course which few 
could match. As president of his class, Frank distinguished himself as a leader in 
his own right. His amazing ability to adjust to a serious situation with a hilarious 
quip was particularly his own. According to Frank and "31-Knot" Burke, there was 
only one Navy, "the Destroyer Navy." He managed to fool the Skinny Department 
with a score of four for four. His greatest contributions are yet to be realized as he 
takes his place in the Fleet.

The Red Devils, those Sixth Company harriers who won several Brigade champion-

won at Navy, however, were of the black variety. Much of his free time was spent 
across the Severn at the golf course when he wasn't mustering at the Main Office. 
Much of the credit goes to Cliff for his editorial work on our '59 Trident Calendar staff. 
A dyed-in-the-wool Yankee, he was duly impressed by the ice and snow that befell 
West Point during his exchange weekend there. By the time he wore those Second 
Class shoulder boards, he was fully satisfied with the comforts of our "Severn retreat," 
and had his sights set firmly on Naval Aviation.

Leaving Cathedral High School in Boston, Roy took the big step from civilian to 
middie life. With his readiness to assist, great humor, and witty sayings, he quickly 
joined the group known as "the boys." His athletic prowess was shown on the field and 
off, competing in basketball, Brigade boxing, volleyball and swimming. When he 
wasn't writing a lass from home, he could be found working out on the blue trampoline. 
He was famous for accumulating Forms 2 when dragging. It was a big jump from 
"Beantown" to the regulation Crabtown, but Roy came through with colors and the 
future could not look brighter for him.

Paul was born in Connecticut and came to Navy from Boston by way of a Congres-

ketball and track. While at Navy, "Tito," as he was called by his classmates, played 
on the Plebe football team and later, on the Sixth Battalion football and lacrosse 
teams. When winter rolled around he could be found still at these same rugged sports. 
As for Paul's spare time, he just liked enjoying life. Upon graduation he is planning to 
change his address to "Fleet Post Office" by going Navy Line. 

Ruggedly handsome John found Navy Tech courses a breeze and spent most of study 
hours pulling his wives out of academic jams. Whenever his wives were caught up he 
could be found prostrate in his rack. His personality was consistent with his intelligence 
and his easy-going nature acquired him many friends. Known also for his outstanding 
letter writing ability, his correspondence to his female friends was a constant source 
of humor to his wives. His letter writing was not confined only to the girls, for John's 
constant pecuniary difficulties often forced him to drop his folks a line in the quest for 
financial aid. A connoisseur of fine drink, John believed that anything intoxicating was 
outstanding and was never known to pass up a chance to test a sample. His greatest 
attribute is his outlook on life and his trait for looking for the best.

Coming to the Brigade from Worcester, Ray was always popular with his classmates. 
A Marine Corps man, he truly enjoyed Tramid. To top everything, he really got 
around with the gals. He enjoyed intramural sports such as softball, football, and on 
the outside, ice hockey. At night, during the winter months, if not studying, he was 
in Mahan Hall working behind the scenes for the "Masqueraders" and during the 
spring, the Musical Club Show. He will be a definite asset to the Corps, but the Navy 
will miss his leadership and strong principles.

Frank came to the Academy by way of the University of Notre Dame and remained 
faithful to the Fighting Irish. After a struggle with the academics during Plebe year, 
he became very active in battalion and company sports. With his well-known love for 
Ivy League clothes and parties, Frank made many friends here at the Academy. During 
Second Class Summer at Pensacola, Frank met his true love, flying, and after he grad- 
uates he plans a career in Naval Aviation.

JOSEPH KEELEY

A product of Boston Latin, Joe stormed the Academy as a little guy with a big smile. 
In intramural sports, such as soccer and lightweight football, he was a quick moving 
threat. On weekends he could always be found at the hops with a cute little miss en- 
joying his evenings. After a long day of classes when all seemed lost, he would enter 
the room and come forth with such classic remarks as, "well, tomorrow's a new day. 
I'll make it yet." Joe is the kind of guy that just wouldn't quit. He proved it at the 
Academy and with his spirit and will to work, no goal will be too great. 

Den entered the Academy with a stable full of girls and grand ideas of commanding 
his own ship. He managed to get through Plebe year. Youngster year, however, was 
his downfall. Mid-terms sent him back to Boston. Finding civvie life too unregimented, 
he returned six months later to try Youngster year again. He made it this time, but 
lost that harem. In the beginning of Second Class year he shifted companies for the 
third and final time. The Marine Corps claims this young hero for its own probably 
because he consistently had just about the shiniest pair of mirrors for shoes in the Bri- 
gade. Den's favorite saying was, "the Academy is really a five year course. It's just 
that some guys make it through in four."

As a Coast Guard Junior, Gord claims no single hometown. In his case this proved to 
be an asset, for with his liberal education and traveling experience plus his ready smile, 
he was a welcome addition to any group. Not the greatest of the slipstick genii, he 
stood out when it came to French and Bull. Exhibiting an ardent interest in any pro- 
fessional subject, Gord sets a pair of gold wings as his post-graduation goal, despite 
his close (2.50) association with a wings-bearing Math prof. With an unfailing drive 
plus an incomparable willingness to get along, Gord is bound to be a credit to the 
service of his choice.

Bill found his way to Canoe U via Lawrence Academy. Upon arriving he immediately 
began his war with the Conduct Office. His pastimes were dragging, lacrosse, and sleep- 
ing. He preferred the latter but gained a certain proficiency in the others. He was 
never bothered by studies but would have preferred more Dago and less Skinny. 
His ability to call upon that inherent trait of his ancestors resulted in his many suc- 
cesses in the English Department. With stories of Revere and cruise he was a popular 
and welcome member of our many bull sessions. Bill's choice of a career is in Naval 
Intelligence.

A star student during his entire four year curriculum, Ed still managed to excel on the 
sports field. His sport was running; track, cross country, and steeplechase. A weekly 
habit of his was a trip with the boys to Antoinettes on S. O. P. Ed's most outstanding 
characteristics were his friendliness and his winning personality. Upon graduation he 
will use his talents in the Navy Line where there is always room for men of his high 
caliber. 

After brushing up on his mathematics at M. I. T. for a year, Hank journeyed south to 
put on the Navy Blue of a midshipman and thus commence his career as a Naval 
officer. From Plebe year, academics never seemed to puzzle him as he always came 
through with grades that put him on the Superintendent's List. When he was not ex- 
pounding on all the Navy greats from his home town, Hank could be found busy work- 
ing on the Trident or, during the winter season, down in the Natatorium as manager 
of the varsity swimming team. His smile and easy going manner have made him many 
friends in the Brigade.

Prior to coming to Annapolis, Kev spent two years at Boston College. He left "Bean- 
town" determined to get through the Academy and enter the submarine service. While 
academics were not the least of his worries, he found time to do an exceptionally good 
job on the Reception Committee for visiting athletic teams. If he doesn't stand out 
in a crowd it is only because he is what we term a "sandblower." However, his person- 
ality and ability more than make up for what he lacks in height. His will to do the best 
at whatever he attempts made him a successful boxer for four years, and should carry 
him far in the Fleet.

Anyone talking to Murph or indulging in Mrs. Murphy's chow could tell right away 
that he was from Cape Cod. He was mighty proud of the Cape and it has every reason 
to be proud of him. He was a hard worker with a winning personality. Just as he 
believed in studying hard, so did he believe in playing that way. This was proven many 
times to any lacrosse player who happened to cross his path in practice or game. 
Murph's good nature and sincerity won him many friends here at Navy. Along with 
his ambition, he should be a terrific success. "It's not who you know, or what you know; 
it's who you are."

Bill came to the Academy after a year at King's Point. As a result, he had little trouble 
with life at Navy and academics were a breeze. During the winter months, when not 
taking treatments for loss of hair, he spent most of the time splashing around in the 
Natatorium as a member of the varsity swimming team. The butterfly stroke was his 
speciality, and through the years he developed into one of the best swimmers in the 
East. A career in the Marine Corps seems to be Bill's choice and his success is assured 
because of his tremendous natural ability in dealing with men. 

After spending a year in the Army Reserve, Jack finally saw the light and came to the 
USNA. Despite the academic departments efforts to do otherwise, Jack found time to 
play an active role in such activities as the French Club and PRC as well as managing 
the varsity lacrosse team for four years. A "gun bug" of long standing, Jack's spare 
time was often spent thumbing through the many books and pamphlets on firearms 
stacked in his already crammed desk. After graduation Jack plans a long career in 
Navy Line with submarine duty as his preference.

John is another of the Bay State's gifts to the Academy. His weekends were usually 
filled with typing, picture taking, and covering athletic events for the PRC. An ardent 
believer in the importance of submarine warfare, he spent a week of his precious sum- 
mer leave on a sub cruise. Among his other interests John also finds a great deal of 
time to devote to the Gun Club and his small firearms collection.

Les comes from a long line of New England sailors. Any Plebe with a Dixie drawl who 
Les met was in for a little character building, Yankee style. Finding no hockey team 
to lend his talent to at USNA, he took up the remotely related "hit-em-with-a-stick- 
sport," lacrosse. Les has more time logged in the hospital and on the excused squad 
than anyone else in the class. His ultimate desire is to become a member of the United 
States Marine Corps.

Dependence is the by word of a good Naval Officer and Al was a guy that one could 
depend on ... to be in the rack every spare moment of the day. A straight Navy Line 
man, Al has a great love and respect for the sea. This could be shown by his activities 
in yawl sailing and participation in the Annapolis-Newport ocean races. A four year 
star man, he stands well in the top hundred of the class. No matter where his duty 
station may be he will surely be an asset to it. 

Ski was one of the most well-rounded men ever to attend Navy. Having started his 
education at Lowell Technological Institute, it took Ski only a short time to climb to 
the top of his class at USNA. Using his keen mind, and through constant effort, he re- 
mained there all four years. Not only was Ski an exceptional student, but also a fine 
athlete, playing Plebe football and baseball, and lettering for three years in 150 pound 
varsity football. His activities in the Newman Club, N-Club, and Spanish Club con- 
stituted his extracurricular activities.

Bill claims the land of the "bean and the cod" as his home. He brought with him his 
superior softball abilities and his Bostonian accent. During his Youngster year Bill 
was news editor for WRNV, taking the news from the morning paper. Second Class 
year brought the burden of squaring away the entire Plebe class upon his broad shoul- 
ders. When academics or the system irritated him, he would light his pipe, blow smoke 
in his roommate's face, and thoughtfully inquire, "Why didn't she write today?" Bill 
hopes to go to flight school if he possibly can, but wherever he lands, the Navy couldn't 
ask for a finer officer.

Ted, truly one of Michigan's finest at Navy, breezed in fresh out of high school, took 
the place by surprise and achieved noteworthy success in the social, athletic, and aca- 
demic fields. Ted had many diversified interests while at Navy, being a perennial star 
man and athlete on Navy's cross country and track teams. When not in athletic gear, 
he was usually engrossed in some important Brigade activity. Ted possessed a person- 
ality equal to his academic abilities. With his pleasurable disposition, his ready helping 
hand, and his sincere efforts, he will undoubtedly find happiness and success in all of 
his future endeavors.

Perhaps George's most outstanding virtue was his adaptability. He was one of those 
chosen few who could spend every possible minute of liberty outside the walls and 
still pull in high grades. With the combination of Glee Club and Chapel Choir trips, 
sailing and YP overnights, and out-of-town rifle meets, George was rarely found any- 
where around Annapolis on weekends. George was forever being called upon to drag, 
"a friend of my girl." His luck with the blind drags was phenomenal! He was a hard 
worker and made many close friendships during his four years at the Academy, and 
will undoubtedly make many more in the years to come.

versatile personality. His contributions to the Brigade were highly admirable. His readi- 
ness to help a shipmate distinguished Gary as outstanding. One could not help but notice 
the fine attitude he displayed toward the people with whom he came in contact. When 
he graduates, Gary will surely be a fine asset to the Navy.

Arriving at Navy with two years at Villanova and a Youngster cruise already behind 
him, Willie proved himself a survivor of the days of wooden ships and iron men, making 
known his first love, sailing. Spark plug of the company cross country and steeplechase 
teams in the fall and winter, he made full use of the spring sailing season to get in 
shape for a lively summer leave aboard the "Bagheera" in Lake Michigan. Although 
he often proposed, "If at first you don't succeed, give up," Willie's determination 
successfully carried him through four years and makes him a sure bet for a great ca- 
reer on those destroyers.

After a short term of leading a gentleman's life at the University of Detroit studying 
mechanical engineering, Terry invaded the banks of the Severn. "Camel" was always 
ready for a party, supplying his own special brand of indescribable humor. A good 
mixer in a crowd, Terry always had something to say, and one usually ended up laugh- 
ing. Plebe year found him in McDonough giving the muscle men on the gym team a 
hand. In the future, there's Navy Line, and the old grads will still need cheering up too.

Hailing from Detroit, Don graduated from Catholic Central High School in 1954. 
Chom joined the Class of '59 after a year at Michigan State. As a top notch guard, he 
played three years of varsity football, winning his letter Second Class year. If you 
chanced to be watching the television the past few Army games or the Cotton Bowl 
game you would have seen Chom very active on the field. He did not let football 
interfere with the academics as he maintained a 3.2 average for his four year stay. 
A hi-fi enthusiast, Chom will go a long way adding a musical note to Navy life. 



DAVID A. DENISTON

Dave came to Navy after a year at Northwestern University. After experiencing the 
rigorous life of a Plebe, he figured that Youngster year was the time for taking advan- 
tage of those new rates. Dragging on weekends, with those late hours and full days had 
its effect and Monday was always the day of ill preparation. Dave never heard the 
end of it from the Dago prof who could always tell when he had been gallivanting on 
the weekend. On Sundays he could be found in the back of the Chapel singing with 
the Antiphonal Choir. When the caps fly overhead on that day in June and Dave dons 
those new boards, it will truly be the Academy's loss and the Fleet's gain.

John was one of the best drilled mids in the Class of '59 as he spent many hours on the fifth 
wing rear terrace perfecting his rifle manual and marching. Allowing Tuesday nights 
for choir practice, "Eks" divided the rest of his time between eating, sleeping and play- 
ing records. Hunting, fishing, and other sports were big with him and he played battal- 
ion football and various other company sports. Academics were a struggle for John, but 
he always had time to debate the merits of Scandanavians and whether or not the Finns 
beat the Russians. John's ability to make friends, with his easy going humor and will- 
ingness to listen, will surely be a great aid in his future career.

Bob came to the "Admiral Factory" from the University of Michigan. Since the rigors 
of Plebe year bothered him little, he found Navy life to his liking. When the academic 
routine permitted it, Bob would take a break from his studies and indulge in his first 
love, music. This he did by active participation in the Antiphonal Choir and listening 
to his collection of records. His minor activities were liberty, beautiful girls, and parties. 
They occupied what little free time was left. Likeable and cheerful, Bob was always 
ready to give his classmates a helping hand. 

After graduation from high school, Tom left the "motor city" to follow the call of the 
sea. Since academics came easy to him, he was able to utilize his time and talents in 
many sports, his favorites being football, fieldball, and basketball. He also managed to 
log many hours of rack time during his four years at Navy. The only thing greater than 
his appetite was his desire to go into submarines after graduation. Wherever his career 
takes him, his attitude and personality will surely make him a success.

Jim entered USNA direct from high school and quickly adjusted himself to military 
life. He always had plenty of excess energy for football, boxing, fencing, and to prove his 
flexibility he did a little acting Second Class year. Studies were no problem for Jim as 
long as he didn't get interested in a good novel. If he did the textbooks would have to 
wait until the book was finished. Jim was in an Air National Guard unit before his stay 
at USNA, and his dream is to return to the wild blue yonder.

John presented his friendly face at Navy fresh from Christian Brothers Academy in 
Albany. He became an active member of the Newman Club and found athletics a 
happy change from the normal routine. He was ever faithful to his OAO, but counted 
basketball his second love and sometimes felt the Academy-induced frustration of 
spending more time with the latter than the former. His determination to succeed in- 
sures a rewarding career in the submarine service. 

Steve is a topnotch representative from the Water Wonderland of the United States. 
Since Plebe year "Lampost," as he is known to us, has been one of Navy's first line men 
in wrestling. His many activities at Navy included the varsity "N" Club, Spanish Club, 
and NACA Council. When he wasn't in the wrestling loft, you could find him kicking a 
soccer ball or football. Steve's only trouble came from the Skinny Department, but as 
he says, "it's all on the slide rule." Although he isn't first in academics, Steve is about 
as sincere and dependable as one can be and is one of the all-around men in his class.

spite of his tenacious study habits, Bob couldn't keep from being full of those invaluable 
gifts of friendliness, sincerity, and an irresistible sense of humor. The Navy was indeed 
fortunate that this man chose the sea for his life's work.

John arrived at the "School-on-the-Severn" a scant two weeks after graduation from

joyed his activity in the Foreign Languages and Newman Clubs, his first love was 
running. It must have been, for he could frequently be found running in the mornings 
before reveille.

An excellent future lies ahead of John in Naval Aviation. While at the Naval Academy 
he acquired many friends by virtue of his cheerful, easy-going manner and a willingness 
to help others at any time. John started his four year stay at Annapolis after a quarter 
term at Michigan State University. A natural swimmer, he contributed greatly to his 
battalion swimming and water polo teams. Since good grades came relatively easy for 
him, John had much free time to spend on his favorite hobbies, reading, golf, and the 
local card game. 

Ross came to Usnay from Michigan's backwoods and quickly proved himself to be 
one of the top brains in the class. He never ceased to amaze everyone by getting such 
fantastic grades with so little effort. His free time was devoted to many activities 
ranging all the way from the Foreign Relations Club to battalion tennis. Ross will be 
remembered by his classmates for many reasons, but the most outstanding of these is 
that he was always glad to lend a hand when someone got stuck with his academics.

In his four years at Canoe U, Bill was a truly worthy member of the Brigade. During

time to the crew team. He loved to discuss sports, especially when upholding the merits 
of the representatives of the State of Michigan. During his spare time he could be found 
writing letters home or pursuing his favorite hobby, giving the Plebes a hard but fair 
time. A man who never has experienced much difficulty in the academic field, Bill will 
be a success in the field of his choice.

Where else would anyone come to become a good Naval Officer but to the Naval 
Academy? So Chuck changed his mailing address from Michigan to Maryland, where 
he learned to be a sailor in the true sense of the word, as anyone on the "Royona" will 
vouch for. Chuck spent most of his free time running off to Bermuda under canvas 
power, and most of his leave behind a fishing pole under no power at all. But all was 
not as leisurely as it seemed, for Chuck had to work hard to keep the grades up. Al- 
though he always managed to pull in 3.8's in O&G, Skinny kept him from being a star 
man. In fact he's still convinced that F does not equal MA. The future sees him beneath 
the sea as submarines have caught the gleam in his eyes.

It was a treat for the Navy when Jack decided to make the Navy his career and entered 
the Academy. Having a sharp mind, he was amply qualified for the rugged academics 
that awaited him. Jack brought with him a natural and easy-going manner which 
brightened many of the dark spots of the past four years. He seemed at home doing 
most anything from working on the Hop and Ring Dance Committees to managing the 
football team. His ambition, devotion and desire to do things right will surely add to 
his popularity and success, whatever his chosen field. 

Deserting the cold wilds of Michigan, Jim made his way to the sunny banks of the 
Severn. With him he carried a strong desire to excel in all respects at Navy. An ex- 
cellent athlete, Jim divided much of his time between gymnastics and swimming. 
Diving from the rafters in the Natatorium was his speciality. An accomplished linguist, 
Jim made a big hit with the gals on the Riviera on cruise. Adventure-minded, the 
Silent Service caught Jim's eye early in Plebe year.

From the land of many lakes came this friendly guy determined to make Naval Avia-

the Academy was a great change from working on his parents' resort in Minnesota, 
he soon proved his adaptability. As a welcome member of the Brigade he was active 
on the Reception Committee, Plebe and varsity fencing, and the Prop Gang. Bill 
made friends easily and was a hard worker and a perfectionist in everything he did. 
He will surely make good in his chosen field.

boosts to the various teams he was on. Although he was a "red-mike" for four years

John hails from the great state of Minnesota where he spends his leave taking up his 
favorite pastimes of hunting and fishing. He became interested in Navy Air through 
his days in the Naval Air Reserve and his greatest experience while at USNA was avia- 
tion summer in which he aptly proved his ability to cope with the rigors and trials of a 
Navy pilot. Always a deeply religious boy, John was elected Newman Club Repre- 
sentative and served with a great deal of enthusiasm. He will always be remembered 
by his classmates for his carefree attitude and sense of duty to the Naval Service. 

Jack, a true Irishman from the far north country, entered our hallowed halls from the 
Naval Academy Prep School at Bainbridge. After a slow start in the academics he 
finally put his brain in gear and pulled some gravy from then on and gained the title of 
"Scientific Hoey." Participating in gymnastics, and other intramural sports, Jack al- 
ways kept his physical conditioning in a par with his grades. If he can still see upon 
graduation, you can be sure that he'll be going after those wings of gold which have 
been on his mind for the past four years.

Tony, a tall and lanky lad from the North woods, came to Navy straight from high

work, they were easily overcome. In spite of many difficulties, Tony still found time 
to work with the weights for the Plebe track team. After Plebe year he became an ac- 
tive part of the track team and continued to do his part athletically and otherwise. 
Any classmate of Tony's will vouch for his steady application and incentive in any- 
thing he undertook. With these qualities and a fine record behind him, his future com- 
manding officers will indeed be very fortunate.

"The beach is that way!" This was just one of Dave's many stunts or quotes which 
never failed to receive a round of laughter from his classmates even after the most 
rugged p-work. The fact that he couldn't see as far as his feet didn't stop Dave from 
being one of the Brigade's chief authorities on the mambo, Charleston or comedy 
routine. For all his clowning, Dave always managed to pull good grades except for the 
steam exams in which, for some reason or other, he seldom made over a 2.5. For four 
years Dave was a mainstay on his company sports teams. His only question was why 
he didn't receive a blanket for his three years on the sub squad.

A true Minnesota sportsman, Karty came to the Academy in hopes of finding plenty 
of good skiing. The snow he hoped to ski on, however, was not always there but the 
academic snow storm filled in for it very well. Bringing a good deal of football expe- 
rience with him from Denfield High School, he stuck with our Mitey Mites for three 
years and lettered as a tackle. He expanded his athletic talents in several other direc- 
tions, mixing lacrosse, fieldball and squash to give him a very fine outlook on sports. 
Dragging was a favorite pastime, and being a true gentleman, Karty preferred blondes. 
If the Navy assigns him to the Antarctic, it will not be an unhappy day for Karty; he 
shall find his home on his skis. 

With a Naval Reserve appointment and a year at Northwestern Preparatory School, 
Don left the farm in Minnesota for the Naval Academy. Substitutes for hunting and

that no problem was too difficult. His good-humored nature will always be remembered 
by the friends he made at the Academy.

Dale is one of the few midshipmen who can claim to have lived in eleven different 
houses, without being a Navy Junior. His addresses have ranged from Pennsylvania 
to Minnesota. While here at Navy he was very active in sports in addition to keeping 
a good academic average. To mention a few of his activities, Dale taught Sunday School, 
sang in the Antiphonal Choir, wrestled on the varsity for four years, and had his own 
disc jockey show on WRNV. One of the more "gung-ho," a bright future has been pre- 
dicted for Minnie in the Marine Corps. 

Minnesota donated Dick to the Naval Academy and he would never let one forget it. 
He was never much for athletics. As a matter of fact he took to the "radiator squad" 
as if it were designed for him. A really great guy, he was handy to have around when 
lifting a few or chasing a girl. A great joker, Dick was seldom in a serious mood. He 
often amazed his wives by his ability to study with his eyes closed and lying on his 
back. After graduation Dick will take off for the wild blue yonder.

After graduation from high school, Ron attended the University of Minnesota for two 
years where he excelled while pursuing a course in accounting. A man of action, he 
soon found that accounting was not nearly as appealing as a military career. At the 
Academy, he displayed a great interest in Plebe and varsity fencing as well as in other 
sports. Never one to under emphasize academics, he succeeded in starring. One could 
always find him working on the Log, going to club meetings or delighting in the var- 
ious pleasures of dragging. Ron's favorite motto was, "there are a lot of pebbles on the 
beach so after a weekend it's time for a change."

Bob entered Navy Tech after completing his high school days in Karlstad. He soon 
became one of Max Bishop's boys and helped win many a game for the Blue and Gold 
with his booming bat. His friendly, easy-going manner won the admiration of his class- 
mates and he was never one to refuse the opportunity for a good time. Bob doesn't 
remember too much about Youngster year since he spent most of it in the rack. The 
high spot of his day was always mail time, which brought letters from his many female 
fans. Both athlete and student, Bob was certainly as asset to the Brigade.

BARRY R. PACKARD

A service junior, Barry had the intense ambition to become an officer. After graduating 
from Fairbarn High School in Ohio and attending prep school for a year, this ambition 
started to become a reality when he entered Annapolis. Academics were always a 
struggle but Barry learned that no problem was too tough. A member of the pistol 
team and an avid member of the Gun Club, he always managed to find time to do a 
little shooting. His ability to keep his classmates laughing and his love of parties and 
leave will long be remembered by all. 

After eighteen months in the Naval Air Reserve and six months of studying at North- 
western Preparatory School in Minneapolis, Jack came to USNA. Although he had 
trouble with academics at first, he raised his grades through hard work and application. 
The afternoon hours found him out front for the company steeplechase, cross country, 
and battalion track teams. While at the Academy, his thoughts were centered on grad- 
uation more often than on girls. Always happy, the energy which he saved when sup- 
pressing a desire to sing at reveille was expended in going along with the frequent, good- 
natured teasing from his classmates that he was Japanese.

Scotty joined the Brigade after serving two years in the United States paratroopers. 
Well-liked and respected by all, he served as a constant source of spirit and inspiration 
for all who knew him. An excellent golfer, he proved to be one of the most successful 
members of the Plebe and varsity golf teams. When he was not engaged in athletics, 
extracurricular activities, or studying, he could always be found playing the pin ball 
machines on "Robbers Row." His pleasant personality, driving spirit and high ambi- 
tions all combine to make him an excellent candidate for Navy Air. 




J 93 



Sully hails from Minneapolis where he attended DeLaSalle. He was well-known for his 
sense of humor and knack of getting to formation with a minimum of time remaining. 
He fenced at the Academy and, as in everything he did, made a fine showing. It appears 
during his stay, his favorite hobbies were writing letters and cleaning the room. John 
L. is well-known for his three sisters whose pictures attracted a lot of attention. His 
ability to get a job done and his conscientiousness will serve him well in whatever he 
does. The Navy should find a good officer in this midshipman.

Sus came to Navy from the "Land of Sky-Blue Waters." His acting ability soon earned 
him leading roles with the Masqueraders. Gary is probably more well-known as being 
past-president of the Twenty-fourth Company "Tecumseh Club." This didn't affect 
his cheerful disposition, for he was always ready with a smile and a good word for all 
hands. The Naval Academy will feel a tremendous loss when Sus walks out the gate 
for the last time. His choice for the future is Navy Line which will undoubtedly result in 
nothing but success for him. 

As a result of his "Marine Juniorship," Bob came to us from the sunny climate of 
Hawaii. At first he was a quiet and studious lad, but soon took to heart the fatherly ad- 
vice of his Firstie and started looking at the brighter side of life. Bob participated in 
outdoor Plebe and company sports with swimming added for variety. In between sports 
and academics, however, Bob always found time to write to his OAO. Never one to 
waste time in one spot during his summer leaves, he included a good bit of traveling to 
far away places. Bob's sincere manner earned him the friendship and respect of all and 
he is sure to be a success in his big ambition, the United States Marines.

St. Louis Park sent a sample of its best in the form of Russ Whipps. He entered the 
Academy after a hitch in the Reserves, and easily fitted into that rare category of 
natural athletes. He had those prerequisites of drive and determination that are man- 
datory for success in any contest. Plebe summer saw his first introduction to a lacrosse 
stick and the two have been together since. After leading the Plebe team to a successful 
season, Russ slipped easily into the varsity position which he held for three years. His 
perseverance stood him in good stead at the Academy and will continue to do so in the 
Fleet.

Ben spent one year at Duke University where he became a member of Phi Delta Theta 
Fraternity. His engineering background helped him to pass the book work at USNA 
with little trouble. From his varied interests, flying emerged as the most predominant 
which was encouraged by aviation summer at Pensacola and by some civilian lessons in 
Atlanta. Among the athletics in which he participated, he considered softball the most 
enjoyable. Ben enjoys the beauty of nature, particularly that of the North Georgia 
mountains where he always spent a portion of his annual leave.

Cliff came to Navy from State College of Mississippi. His pleasing southern drawl 
quickly earned him the nickname of "Happy" due to his bright outlook on life. Never 
one to worry about his grades, Cliff still managed to make those extra weekends. He 
has, in all truth, been a great representative of all rebs. His many friends will never 
forget him. 



Felix came to the Naval Academy from the deep South and was always anxious to talk 
about his home state and those beautiful southern belles. He enjoyed running, having 
always been an important member of his company's cross country team. To describe 
him accurately, one would have to say that he is quiet, friendly and always ready with a 
warm smile. Felix worked hard to prove himself worthy of the Naval profession and 
we are sure that wherever he is in the Fleet, his devotion to the service will make him a 
great success.

Mouse, as Dave was known to everyone, was one who didn't sweat academic depart-

Only back in Missouri or across the Severn playing golf. As an organizer, Mouse was a 
success; that is if the scheme called for an infraction of USNA Regulations. He always 
had the uncanny knack of letting someone else sign the conduct report when his 
schemes failed. If he continues to memorize eye charts, he may escape the Civil Engi- 
neering Corps yet.

obtained from the school motto of one of his "fans." Jim couldn't be convinced that 
"love conquers all" didn't mean he had to fall in love with every girl he met. Between 
naps and romances he spent a lot of time with the Public Relations Committee and the 
Reception Committee. Jim's plans are to go Navy Line and work for his dolphins.

Although a native of Huckleberry Finn's hometown, Jim has no desire to float on a 
raft or a man-of-war. He is strictly a Semper Fidelis man. Two years at Hannibal's 
La Grange Jr. College, coupled with many long hours at the books have kept Jim one 
step ahead of the academic departments. At times it has been a mighty short step, but 
still long enough to leave time for four years on the Reception Committee and two with 
the Portuguese Club. He has even managed to work in some battalion football and a 
season as a high jumper on the Plebe track team. That high jumping should come in 
handy if the foxholes are deep enough at Quantico.

Four years at Oklahoma Military Academy found Jerry well-armed for the challenge 
offered him by the Naval Academy. He quickly assumed a position of leadership as a 
company and battalion representative and was selected to serve on the Fourth Class 
Detail during Second Class summer. After a close call with Youngster Dago, he finally 
found a subject he could master in Second Class Ordnance. Jerry was very active in 
company and battalion sports, playing on the football, track, and cross country teams. 
There was also time for a hobby though; his hi-fi equipment received a real workout 
during his free moments in the ivy-covered halls of Bancroft. 

Sky came to Annapolis prejudiced against Navy Air with two years of drilling with the 
AFROTC at the University of Missouri. Second Class summer showed him what the 
Navy can put in the air and converted him to a seaborne Navy flyboy. His exceptional 
athletic ability together with his deep interest in the professional and scientific courses, 
make him well suited to a career in the sky and Navy blue.

"The Little Corporal" is truly a sports-minded individual with football as his main in- 
terest. Mixing a little fencing and tennis with his quarterbacking for the First Battalion 
football team, places him in the "all-around" category. Bob's subtle humor and ready 
smile, topped with a regulation crew-cut received from non-regulation sources, makes 
him a regular guy, well-liked and respected by his classmates. Though disliking Plebe 
Bull immensely, he went on to star in his history and government courses. When he is 
not practicing his Russian with someone, you can find him sailing on Sunday after- 
noons with his pretty school sweetheart.

Wayne who hails from Missouri, has the personality and qualities to be a leader and a 
fine officer. He is a person who never lets anything bother him or get him down, and 
is quick thinking and intelligent. "Rick," as he is called by his many friends, has taken 
part in company sports as much as possible. His favorite sport is squash. To show his 
determination to learn, he did not know what squash was when he came to the Academy, 
but by Second Class year he became the top player in his company. He also was on the 
battalion debating team Youngster year and was one of the best. Any obstacle in 
Rick's path will not be too big for him to overcome.

After a year at the University of Missouri, Hans, favorite son of Linneus, found his 
way to the banks of the Severn. Finding no difficulty with the academics, he turned 
his attention to the perennial battle of pawns and knights, in which he excelled. Fall 
and winter afternoons found him engaged in his favorite sports, cross country and 
steeplechase. Although not a front runner, maximum effort and determination usually 
helped him gain some points for his team's cause. A background as a ham provided 
an interest in the Radio Club, through which he found many new friends. If ability 
and interest count, Hans will enjoy a long and successful career. 

Bill is one of those mids who is gifted with a wide vocabulary and a convincing manner

taking a liberal arts course. While here he used these talents in debates and in snowing 
his wives when the bull sessions rolled around. Bill is also athletically inclined, as he was 
on the Plebe lightweight crew team and participated in tennis, steeplechase, gymnas- 
tics, and company lightweight football. Bill, like many others, believes in the fine in-

of the Second Battalion track team and the Seventh Company cross country team. 
When he wasn't outrunning his opponents in cross country, or his blind drags on week-

by his friendly greeting, Chuck had the uncanny ability to smile even on a Monday

The midshipman with the most friends in any class is Mike Sturges. There certainly- 
must be a lot of the Brigade from the mid-West for he surely did not meet them all 
here. Since his arrival, Mike's pleasant personality has gained for him the job of 
Treasurer of the Class of '59 for two consecutive years. Beside standing well up in his 
class in academics and physical education, he found time to participate in the Anti- 
phonal Choir and intramural sports. There is one thing Mike is looking forward to 
after graduation; a change in Navy Regulations to allow water skiing off the fantail 
of a destroyer. 



There are few people who, by their very presence, can form a cheery atmosphere even 
in the midst of difficulties. Such a person is Bob, a good-natured Missourian, always 
ready with a witty remark designed to bring out the best of one's sense of humor. 
Noted for his prowess on the blue trampoline, Bob is also a member of the intercon- 
tinental club devoted to doing chins on the bar. After surviving two cruises, he remains 
a confirmed Navy Line man and in this career all of his many friends are confident 
that he will be as well-liked and admired as he was at USNA.

Youngster cruise first taught George the intricacies of bridge. Since then he spent a 
good part of his free time developing into an adept player. His skills, however, were 
not confined to the bridge table. On the company football field and volleyball courts 
his driving spirit and will to win often sparked his team to victory. His sporting ability 
stems from his high school days in Thief River Falls. If "Giff's" desire is fulfilled, the

he's always in there with a sensible solution when problems arise. Charlie's love for 
sports caused him to do a lot of work in PRC. Working with Brigade boxing, he picked 
up the nickname, "canvas-back." He was also very active in the Newman Club and 
the Judo Club. Charlie and the Naval Service will enjoy having him first at Pensacola 
and then in the air. If he can fly planes like he can throw comments, we have Navy's

a wrestler. He made the most of his four years at Navy, where he divided his time be- 
tween a little studying, a lot of dragging, and Plebe, battalion, and company sports. 
He "coxed" Plebe crew and boxed on the battalion team. Free could almost always be 
found at the Gun Club either firing or working on his collection of weapons. A promis- 
ing career in the Marine Corps is planned for him.

John came to USNA after spending a year at the College of Wooster in Ohio. While at 
the Academy his name appeared quite frequently on the Superintendent's List. In the 
field of sports he excelled by stroking the 150 pound jv crew team to the Eastern Na- 
tional Championship in 1957. Throughout his four years aviation and women were his 
foremost interests. With the arrival of Second Class year the female forged ahead. 
Hard work and a sparkling personality won for him the respect and admiration of all 
his classmates. With these capabilities he is destined for success.

Bob came to the Academy from the ROTC and a year at the University of Nebraska. 
Plebe year he became interested in gymnastics, staying with it two seasons each year

Forensic Society also held his attention each winter and spring, a hold-over from his 
high school days and he was quite successful in intercollegiate competition.

When Omaha, the "livestock capital of the world," gave us Jerry for four long years, 
little did it realize that the Bohemians had blessed him with a name which was im- 
mediately to become famous as completely unpronounceable. As if that was not enough, 
it also gave us the only "Bohunk" who could not polka, though he certainly did not 
let it put a damper on his social life. After Dago went its beloved way, Jerry managed 
to take advantage of the extra weekends donated by the Superintendent's List to spread 
his fun-loving ways to the Washington and New York areas. 



Before leaving his home state and coming to the shores of the Severn, Bob attended 
the University of Nebraska where he studied architecture. He never had any trouble 
with the academics except for the two year struggle with Italian. During his four 
years at USNA, Bob participated in batt track and was a stalwart on the Third Com- 
pany steeplechase team. Since he was an avid music lover and record collector, he en- 
joyed playing in the Concert Band and working on the Reception Committee. Bob's 
plans for the future is a career in submarines.

Dick will always be remembered for his good nature, willingness to help his classmates 
and his keen interest in extracurricular activities while at the Academy. Academics 
seemed to offer little challenge to him and much of his spare time was spent helping 
his friends with their problems. Dick's main interest was the Foreign Relations Club 
of which he was vice-president First Class year. In addition he did considerable work 
in the art field for the Academy publications. The Navy has always interested him 
and he took every opportunity to broaden his knowledge of the service. Dick should 
have an interesting career in the Navy and one which will do justice to both the serv-

Grant claims "the biggest little city in the world" as home. His favorite expression 
was "come around, mister" as he endeavored to aid in the furthering of the Plebe's 
training as the upper-class had once done for him. Grant did very well academically, 
and unlike many of his classmates wasn't always content with the gouge, but wanted 
the theory behind a solution. No letter man, but still a great competitor, he partici- 
pated in company fieldball, cross country, squash, and battalion bowling. If his wishes 
are granted Naval Aviation will receive a most conscientious and able officer with whom 
it will always be a pleasure to serve. 



Just like all the other modest midshipmen from the west coast, Hugh was just the man

ways survived the worst. He loved sleeping through Steam labs as dearly as the rest. 
Boots will be long remembered for his athletic ability. A holder of several Academy

his appearance sharp and managed to maintain a good academic average. By disre- 
garding the call of the rack occasionally, he proved he was no slouch at dragging. 
Johnny's ability to make friends should prove a valuable asset in his future service

John is one of those fellows who always gives everything he has to what he does. An 
alert and witty guy, he attributes his sense of humor to the two years he spent at the 
University of New Hampshire before coming to the Academy. Naval Aviation is John's 
choice of profession. He was very active in battalion sports, including gym and water 
polo. Extracurricular activities took up a good deal of his time. Best of luck to a swell 
guy and a dedicated career man. 

Joe was bequeathed to Canoe U by the College of the Holy Cross. His quick wit never 
failed to amuse his classmates and always made him a welcome member of any gather- 
ing. His love for lacrosse, developed during Plebe summer, remained with him and he 
could always be found toting his trusty stick. Joe considered himself to be a "gentle- 
man farmer," and, above all, a connoisseur of beautiful women. The academic depart- 
ments were continually foiled by his quick thinking. The Conduct Office, however, 
fared much better. Joe has not yet made up his choice of service, but is sure to succeed 
in whatever it may be.

everyone of his athletic ability. He rowed on the Plebe 150 pound crew team and earned 
his N on the varsity 150's as a Youngster. He enjoys all types of music, but classical 
is his favorite, and, according to him, there is nothing better than a book, the rack and 
a concerto. He plans a career in the Submarine Navy.

Norm comes to us with a fine background having been an all state center and president 
of his high school class. Here at the Academy, wrestling on the Plebe and varsity 
teams gained for him marked attention. He also played football Plebe year. Norm was 
noted for his willingness to meet someone new. He was seen dragging one or two girls 
each weekend. After graduation he plans to go to Pensacola to begin a career in avia- 
tion. His friends will remember him for his even temper, always-present sense of humor, 
and ability to get along with all. 

As a Marine Junior, Johnny spent most of his life traveling from one state to another. 
Studies were the least of his troubles and he spent a considerable amount of time with 
the Public Relations Committee and Reef Points during Plebe and Youngster years. 
Sports weren't his greatest interest, although his name was often mentioned in company 
football. His favorite pastime was reading and listening to light music. It has often 
been said that he was a Don Juan, but after Second Class summer he took a keen 
interest in miniatures. His wish is to become a submarine commander and to sail the 
seven seas and their depths and to see something of the world.

stood in the top fourth of his class. Intensely proud of his New England heritage and 
his broad a's, Art is the kind of guy one cannot help but like. We expect to see him go 
a long way in Naval Aviation, his chosen field.

No one will question Ed's ability when it comes to sports as he did a fine job for Navy, 
excelling on the football, wrestling, and track teams. Besides doing well academically, 
he had many interests, being in the Gun and Boat Clubs, NRA, and enjoying good

he kept in shape with construction work. "Bridges" stood high academically and will 
undoubtedly contribute to the Marine Corps as he did to the Brigade. Green always

more trying moments around Navy a great deal more bearable for those near him. 
He proved to be an able athlete. When not playing 150 pound football, he helped push 
many a company team to victory. He will attack every problem with a stubborn per- 
sistence that will lead him to success. 





JOHN T. BOND

John, who came to USNA from the Naval Reserve, spent two years prior to his entry 
working in the construction and electronics businesses in New Jersey. He had the du- 
bious distinction of never winning a point in three years of steeplechase but took this 
in stride with a cheerful, "What, me worry?" His main interests were a girl, comics, 
and bongo drums. After four years, John has decided that the military service is far 
from being the worst career in the world.

The Naval Academy did not change the easy-going manner that Lee brought with him. 
A conscientious worker who possessed a quick wit, he established himself as an active 
leader in class activities. Although automobiles were a favorite pastime, Lee also had 
a fine hi-fi set and record collection. His athletic interests, beside making it over the 
obstacle course for three years, were concentrated on crew and baseball. After gradua- 
tion, Lee hopes to be a proud wearer of golden dolphins, and all that know and admire 
him are sure he'll succeed in all his expectations.

Nolan Robert Burke, though not of the thirty-one knot variety, went "all ahead flank" 
while at Navy. Nol demonstrated that his years at Franklin and Marshall as a physics 
major were not wasted as he breezed through the best and hardest that Navy had to 
offer. He continually wore stars and even saw a few while participating in battalion 
boxing for two years, along with battalion fencing, bowling, and company cross country. 
As one who thinks "Navy Line is mighty fine," Nol will keep his stars along with 
the lasting friendships of all those who knew him. 



TIMOTHY B. CASEY

Harrington Park 

"Come up, Mr. Casey." "Aye aye, sir. Bill take the helm, the Ensign wants me up 
forward." That was yawl drill Plebe summer, but since then Case's piloting has im- 
proved. As Navy's "Phiness FofT," Case toured the continent on leaves, but plans to 
do the rest of his training in a supersonic aircraft. His international wanderings and 
amorous adventures from Crabtown to Stockholm were his trade-marks as surely as 
his rarely shaved chin. Guided by the principles "make sure you're right, then go 
ahead," T. B. sometimes found himself crossing swords with the Executive Depart- 
ment. This might be summed up by the quotation, "No, Mr. Hofford, I wasn't 
trying to sell my confidential publications to the enemy."

Mike characterized the great Irish spirit so typical of his race. He was often moody and 
melancholy, yet there was always his quick crisp laughter which one could tell was 
never forced. He read a great deal, but this never interfered with his being a star man 
in academics all four years. On summer cruise, Mike was continually fascinated by the 
strange lands which he visited. He proved an interesting companion to have along for 
a night of carousing on the beach, what with his Gaelic charm. Mike loved USNA as 
only he could and his years here were happy ones.

Reared on the Jersey shore, Dave got his taste of salty air at a young age and set his 
sights upon the Naval Academy. He always had a great deal of ambition and never 
let an opportunity slip by him. Entering the Academy after serving a year in the Naval 
Air Reserve, his zeal continued while at Usnay where he wore stars above his anchors 
and was on the Superintendent's List. Though his academics were his prime interest, 
he capitalized on sports as a boxer and a member of the Plebe swimming team, besides 
distinguishing himself in company sports. The future will provide many experiences 
and opportunities for him, and we can rest assured that Dave will come out on top. 

Before coming to the Naval Academy, Ron spent a year at Bullis where he captained 
the basketball team as he did the Plebe team at Navy. He helped keep spirits high 
with his cheerful ways of doing things. When his time permitted, he was active in com- 
pany sports, helping to win two regimental championships. Ron always used his leaves 
to good advantage, for after every one the Academy was the place where he caught 
up on his rest. We all know that if Ron meets the future with the same enthusiasm as 
he had in his four years here, he will be an outstanding officer.

The Navy gained a real sponsor when Newark's Ambassador to Annapolis came to 
make his home at Navy. With more than an overdose of blue and gold, Bob never 
ceased to believe that Navy really could graduate "Men of Annapolis." Sports were 
his number one interest and he spent four years contributing to the Fourteenth Com- 
pany's winnings in football, basketball, and tennis. In between trips to Dahlgren Hall, 
he managed to get in a little Russian and spent his evenings with the Aeronautical 
Engineering Club. Professionally, Bob found his home in aeronautics and after Second 
Class summer, air definitely had another customer. With a head start in ability, he 
plans his road to success somewhere above thirty-thousand feet and if determination 
and desire are of any importance, we can look for his flag before much time has passed. 



213 



Bill came to us with a wide background. After a year of college, he enlisted in the Navy 
as an airdale. Finding the inside of a Navy plane more interesting than the outside, he 
took a tour of duty at NAPS to get the "gouge" for the "main and master trade school." 
Those green stripes still mean a lot to him. Plebe year never did seem to get Bill down 
and perhaps that is why his classmates knew him as such a personal friend. He's at his 
best while playing a piano, and looks rather distinctive with his King Farouk type 
waistline.

Matt brought his well-known musical talent to the Academy. Throughout his years 
here at Navy, he participated in many musical activities including the Glee Club, 
Catholic Choir, the Musical Club Show and also did a little solo work on his own. On 
weekends that he wasn't dragging, he could usually be found in his room writing to 
his OAO or listening to records. Matt's mature judgement and winning smile are sure 
to stand him in good stead in the years ahead. 

Gabe came to us from the Lake region of north Jersey. A graduate of Admiral Farragut 
Academy, he spent most of his time on the sports squads. He participated in Plebe 
basketball and crew and then in varsity swimming and crew. He always enjoyed car- 
tooning, reading, and a good bull session, but soon became infamous for his party 
spirit and life. His quick wit and easy smile put him on many party lists which he ac- 
cepted with delight. He also could be a sincere listener and for this combination of 
listening and giving his frank opinion on any subject, he will be remembered by all.

Jerry arrived at Navy Tech after an invigorating year of fraternities, parties, and 
revelry as a history major at Dartmouth. Picking up the new sport of soccer, he added 
this to Plebe swimming during his first year. When not sleeping or reading letters 
from his many fans in Summit, he found time to give quite a few seasons to the varsity 
swimming and water polo teams and to playing on a regimental championship basket- 
ball team. As Jerry joins the ranks of the service, we still can hear his cryptic comment, 
"women are a snare and a delusion, etc." 




214 



P. T. came to USNA from Georgetown University. His Ivy League "don't sweat it," 
attitude was smashed by the onslaught of the Executive Department. Sports and 
academics agreed with him and he became a true blue and gold son of Neptune. Par's 
love of wrestling led him to frequent rematches with the "Blue Dragon." Though 
four years of wrestling with Plebe, battalion, and varsity squads have altered his 
features somewhat, he compensated for his more strenuous activities by playing 
volleyball, dragging, and weekend soirees at "Little Bohemia" with dinner by candle- 
light.

"The Hawk" came to us from Wyoming Seminary where he spent a year prior to his 
tour at Navy Tech. Jack was an all around athlete, though his first love was baseball. 
It was on the diamond where he acquired his nickname — the coach just couldn't 
remember his name. One of the most congenial fellows around, Jack was well-liked by 
his classmates and rarely had occasion to exert his authority over the lower classes. 
Possibly the only occasion he had to raise his voice was to get the chow around the 
table. His ambition is to fly and the best wishes of his classmates go with him in his 
chosen field 

Although Ed was born in the Bronx, he now claims Dumont as his home. He came to 
USNA from the Marine Corps via NAPS where he attained the rank of sergeant after 
three years. Ed's keen mind has been a great asset to him in his studies. After gradua- 
tion, Ed plans to return to the Corps. He has his eye set on being Commandant. 
Among his favorite pastimes were reading Marine Corps' history, playing outdoor 
sports, and taking trips to Florida. With the ability and determination that Ed pos- 
sesses, he can easily accomplish nearly any task he undertakes.

Dick came to Canoe U from Admiral Farragut Academy where he spent four years. 
After winning a varsity track letter at Farragut, Dick continued his running in com- 
pany steeplechase and out-of-season track. Strangely enough, despite this show of 
athletic interest, he could usually be found on any given afternoon writing his daily 
letter to the OAO. After a brief academic scare Youngster year, Dick really buckled 
down to keep his head high above civilian waters. Always showing a keen interest in 
the submarine service, we expect someday to see him commanding his own nuclear 
powered boat.

Bob, a product of Seton Hall, arrived at the Academy with a fine academic and ath- 
letic background. He put both to good use in maintaining very respectable grades and 
acting as a mainstay in battalion football and company sports. In the years to come, 
it is certain that Bob will prove to be a competent officer and the people of Union will 
be justly proud of him. With a goal ever present he will always be striving to reach it.

Jack possessed the intelligence and drive to place him high in his class. He showed the 
courage to stand behind what he believed and to strike out what he felt was wrong. 
He showed himself to be an accomplished squash player and displayed leadership 
abilities which helped him to be one of the few midshipmen to command the schooner 
"Freedom." Jack attended Purdue University for one year before coming to Navy. He 
likes classical music, and is one of those gifted individuals who is constantly aware of 
everything that is going on or is being planned. He can be expected to go a long way 
as a Naval officer. 

Before entering USNA, Al attended Admiral Farragut Academy where he first ac- 
quired the know-how of Navy life. He was never known to let a friend down and was 
always willing to take the weight of the load when the need arose. Because of these 
characteristics he was a very able company representative and an active member in 
the BAC. Sports and music were his favorite hobbies. If he wasn't found over at the 
boat house, he could be found walking in from town with a new jazz or hillbilly album. 
If he continues to employ the traits which he has already shown, he should have no 
trouble in succeeding in his career as a Naval officer.

Happy days added up to happy years during Tony's stay at USNA. Few mids enjoyed 
life as did he. Always ready to give anything at least one try, he made the squash team 
without ever having played before. This was his sport, and like most things he did, he 
went at it with heart and soul. Proud of his Italian ancestry, he was always boosting 
things done in the Italian manner and his room often echoed the magic music of that 
country. A star man in academics his four years, he constantly strived to improve 
himself in all things. A fine pianist, an enthusiastic athlete and a fine individual, Tony 
will always be remembered by everyone. 



216 




Bob, better known to his friends by his adopted Plebe year nickname of Jerry, attended 
St. Peter's College in his home city as a physics major for three years prior to his en- 
trance in the Academy. Listening to "rock and roll" music and being an ardent Dodger 
fan are two of his main enjoyments. The Navy will probably see Bob after graduation 
with his goal set on getting his wings. If his forcefulness and his ability to make friends 
remain with him, he is destined to be a huge success in his future ventures.

Rich, with one year of prep school prior to entering the Academy, had little trouble 
with his academics once he passed Dago. He was very active in intramural sports, 
playing batt football, company football and basketball. Being a sports car enthusiast, 
he was always ready to relate a famous car story. Rich was quite a ladies man, never 
having any trouble finding a drag or someone to write to. When the right girl does show 
up she will really get an all-around guy. Naval Aviation is Rich's preference and he 
should make a top flight pilot. 

Fred came to the Academy after spending a year at Brown, giving college a try in 
civilian style. A natural at academics, he had a little extra time to work on his books as 
business manager of the "Log" and to play around with one of his favorite hobbies, 
astronautics. Always ready with a little help or encouragement when a classmate came 
up with a problem, academic or otherwise, Fred was a pretty popular guy around the 
Yard. He plans to go submarine after graduation with particular interest in the guided 
missile variety.

Vince was born in Czechoslovakia and came to Linden when only two months old. He 
brought with him to the Academy a clever and able mind, a winning personality, and a 
proficiency in soccer and fieldball. An outstanding student in Russian, he easily breezed 
through his other studies. This left quite a bit of time which was devoted to the en- 
tertainment of visiting athletic teams as an important member of the Reception Com- 
mittee. He also found time for active participation in the Russian and Foreign Rela- 
tions Clubs. His fine leadership qualities will enable him t o do well in his chosen career, 
the United States Navy.

Oak came to the Naval Academy from Admiral Farragut Academy. Once here, he 
spent the greatest part of his time playing football. A real hustler, he will be remem- 
bered by all for his tremendous drive and determination on and off the gridiron. Hill- 
billy music, Dixie land, and Louis Armstrong are a few of his favorites that filled the 
remainder of his time. A quiet and easy going guy with a bit of an Irish temper are 
the traits which gave Oak luck in cards, and a cute little nurse from the north country. 
Out of season he had the secret of relaxation that kept the grey hairs from his reddish 
blond head.

Attending Lehigh University for a year before entering USNA, Bob quickly became a 
star student. On the athletic field he was equally at home and led the company to 
many a victory in soccer, fieldball and Softball. Summer leaves were spent on the New 
Jersey points in preparation for another active year. Bob restricted his weekend enter- 
tainment to drinking coffee and a movie to pass the time when he wasn't dragging. 

Born in Brooklyn and reared within shouting distance of the briny deep, Howard came 
to the Academy from the submarine Navy. His wide knowledge of the Navy stood him 
in stead Plebe year, although he was distinguished as the only Plebe in '59 with his 
personal ED squad. Sportswise, he was a stalwart lineman for the company and bat- 
talion soccer teams. Possessed with a fine voice as well as athletic prowess, he sang a 
first rate bass for the Chapel Choir. A willing worker with a quick sense of humor, 
Howie will be a welcome man aboard any boat in the submarine Fleet which he hopes 
to rejoin.

After a year at Rutgers, Babe reported for duty at USNA. He could always be found on 
the soccer field during the fall and spring. His four years on the soccer team were 
characterized by his unlimited enthusiasm which was evident in anything he did. 
When he wasn't kicking a ball he could be found at the football practice helping the 
company lightweights. With his good disposition and beaming personality, Babe is sure 
to make good in the Naval profession. Second Class summer in Pensacola was all he 
needed to decide upon Navy Air as a career.

Getting used to Navy Blue was no trouble at all for Pete because he wore that color 
uniform throughout four years of high school. Although he never was one to hit the 
books too hard, he always seemed to come out well on top. Plebe year, Pete reached 
stardom in the Masqueraders production of The Caine Mutiny. Most of his after- 
noons were spent playing company or battalion squash. His free time was put to good 
use writing for the Log. Weekends, when he wasn't dragging, he devoted to the 
Reception Committee. Always a smooth operator with the fair sex, Pete was forced to 
retire at an untimely stage of the game to start saving his money for an engagement 
ring.

From twenty-six months as sonarman in the "tin-can" Navy, through a year of NAPS, 
and finally to Annapolis is a long hard road. But for Chuck it was his sole ambition in 
life. The quiet type, Plebe year, he took every advantage of the dragging privileges 
when he became a Youngster. Not many weekends passed by without some social ex- 
citement. A fast man on the athletic field and a frequent member of the Superintend- 
ent's List as well, Chuck plans to enter the submarine service after a year in the sur- 
face Fleet. 

An excellent sense of humor, combined with Southern hospitality, urbane intellect, 
and an outstanding ability to excel in whatever he attempts, exemplifies Shep. Switch- 
ing from crew to gymnastics his Youngster year, Shep worked his way up from the 
bottom to lay claim to the title of third best man on the side horse in the nation. With 
a year at MIT under his hat, this Navy Junior came well prepared for the Academy. 
As a "star" man, his short study hours were often exasperating to his wives, but from 
his record he was one of those fortunate few who need only glance at the books. His 
qualities of leadership will carry him far in the Fleet as a potential skipper of a sub- 
marine.

Rick wasn't born to be a Navy man, but he soon learned that Navy life was for him all 
the way. The years at the Academy were hard for him, what with his typical Jersey 
accent and slightly defective hearing, he was made the butt of many jokes. He took 
them all with a grain of salt and always had a sharp witty return for the most caustic 
comment. His roommates took advantage of his good nature and somehow put him in 
charge of room for the entire nine months of Youngster year. However, still water runs 
deep and most of Rick's classmates expect him to make a great success in his military 
career.

Entering the Academy directly from high school, Nellie didn't find studies too difficult. 
Usually he could be found in his room lifting weights or studying. Although he never 
went out for the intercollegiate teams, Nelson helped his company through his partici- 
pation on the squash, and lightweight football teams. In the future his high standing 
in academics should be an asset as he plans to make the sub service his career. Always 
ready to argue any point, Nellie will never let wardroom life grow dull.

Jim spent two years as an enlisted man before deciding to try the four year plan at 
USNA. While here he spent most of his off hours either on the pistol range or out view- 
ing the city. Jim was always willing to help anyone, be it the lowliest Plebe or the lofti- 
est First Class. This interest and ability to take an active part in things earned him 
many friends throughout the Brigade. This inherent friendliness and his love for 
service life make him stand high on '59's ladder. 

Ron came to the Academy shortly after graduation from high school, where he devel- 
oped his talents in soccer. He remained an avid fan of the sport, as he played it during 
his stay at Usnay. Ron also enjoyed fieldball and participated in this company sport 
each year. Much of his remaining extracurricular time was occupied by the Catholic 
Choir, Newman and Public Relations Clubs. Spanish put a thorn in Ron's side his first 
two years, and there was no happier person after that last exam Youngster year. Ron 
could always be counted on for a ready smile and overpowering friendliness, and is 
sure to be a success in the Navy.

with a ticket and an appointment to Annapolis. After arriving he soon developed a 
liking for liberty and the rack. Ger's carefree attitude and high spirits were always 
a morale booster for those who needed it. Teaneck may well be proud of him for he made 
Academy life much easier for all with whom he came in contact.

Ross came to Annapolis from the dryer regions of the nation. He quickly became ac- 
customed to the eastern seaboard climate and is now quite a good swimmer and sailor. 
Academics were not hard for him and he found plenty of time for varsity baseball in 
the spring and gymnastics in the winter seasons. Ross was also very active in the Of- 
ficers' Christian Union and was the Naval Academy representative and reporter for 
their magazine "Command." All who knew him will remember him as a person of under- 
standing and one who has always gone out of his way to help others. Wherever he goes, 
in military or civilian life, Ross will always be a credit to USNA.

taken as a game by him and it must be said that he played it well. Although massive 
in structure, John could never be seen to work up enough energy to open a text book. 
It is rumored that he succeeded in getting through Youngster year with a total of only 
four hours of study. His athletic activities consisted of Plebe crew and three years of 
the blue trampoline. His inventive wit was a constant source of amusement to all those 
who knew him.

Carl came straight to the "Boat School" without tasting the distracting benefits of 
college life. He still wonders how he wound up here so far from the desert and moun- 
tains. His weekend time was devoted to a certain miss whom he met in New York. 
His spare time found him running in circles with the Ninth Company cross-country

his career on one.

Brad's homeland is the wide open spaces. The call of the wild, while perhaps not as 
loud after his entrance to USNA, never left him during his happy four years. A mas- 
querader from Plebe to Firstie, his flair for the dramatic and humorous extended in- 
to most phases of his life. His room was always a ready source of those small prohibit- 
ed items that made life bearable for mids and a ripe source of Forms Two for the Ex- 
ecutive Department. He was also an efficient barber's assistant. Besides his outgoing 
and likeable personality, Brad possessed an unusual depth and capacity for clear 
thinking which, coupled with his ever present sense of humor, made him a valuable 
ally, whatever the field of endeavor.

diligent study of continental beer and wine labels. Everyone wondered if he was going 
to make it through those first term Plebe year finals. But through a determination 
that has stayed with him, the ever present pipe and green eye shade have become a 
Tenth Company tradition. With a laugh that can be identified even in a crowded 
theatre, he shrugs off his aversion for women and much prefers to spend the weekend 
catching a local flight out of Anacostia. Mac's magnetic personality and readiness to 
help anyone, no matter what the job, won him the lasting friendship and respect of 
his classmates.

though constantly attracted to the fairer sex, he is wary of "the day." Once undecided, 
Dick is now a Navy candidate who is seriously looking toward Pensacola. Wherever 
he finds his place in the Navy, Dick will certainly succeed.

Dave came to the Naval Academy through a congressional appointment, after serving 
a year in the Naval Air Reserve. His quiet and reserved manner gave way only to his 
fiery Academy spirit. He was more noted for his successes in athletics than anything 
else. Playing three years on the 150 pound football team, two championship fieldball 
teams and one championship softball team didn't leave much time to study, but Dave 
always seemed to pull through. On weekends he could be found teaching Annapolis 
children at his Church Sunday School. His mild manner is sure to gain the respect of 
all he may command.

As the story goes, Carl one day fell in the water trap on the seventh hole of the West- 
chester golf course and ever since then he was sold on the Navy. Spending most of his 
time on the Usnay golf links trying to make the varsity seven did not hurt his academ- 
ics. The way he handled the Bull courses showed his academic abilities. Carl will al- 
ways be noted for his tastes in the female gender. No matter where he was to be found 
whether it be Europe, Norfolk, or in the yard, there was always a good-looking girl 
with him. Navy Line should prove successful for Carl in all respects. 

Pat, more commonly known as P. J., came to the Naval Academy after three years in 
the Navy via the Seventh Fleet and NAPS. His wide interest in current events and his 
general knowledge of the Navy made him a consistent target for Fourth Class ques- 
tions. P. J.'s extracurricular activities in various clubs, added to his already wide 
familiarity with politics, made his quick wit famous. With an ardent desire for world 
travel, it looks as though the Navy is a natural home for P. J. With the added knowl- 
edge of navigation, there should be no stopping his constant ventures to foreign lands, 
provided, of course, that there is a sufficient amount of coffee on board ship to keep 
him satisfied.

In sports he was valuable in both intramural football and basketball. Following his 
interest in football, he was manager of the 150 pound team. Norm's other main inter- 
est was liberty and the sport it provided. On such occasions his charming Polish humor 
found him at the center of the "bull session." Norm came to the Academy from the 
Fleet and intends to attain his goal through Navy Air, after graduation.

Pete was tagged "The Bronx Bull" after journeying here from the big city. He, like 
the rest of us, had much of the fight taken out during the first year and was soon barking 
the menu. Each year he sparked the handball team and went on to be a consistent 
scorer in company basketball. His alertness and ability to grasp even the most difficult 
problem will be the Fleet's gain and the Bronx's loss.

at times he was hampered by injuries. Of his favorite pastimes the one that the "Tur- 
tle" enjoyed most was sitting back in his chair with his feet on the desk and arranging 
a Skinny book in front of him before falling fast asleep. His sleeping habits were only 
exceeded by his enthusiastic participation in classroom recitations. With a look to the 
future, we see the bright prospect of a very successful Naval career. 

Out of the land of the bean and the cod and the busy streets of dear ole' Brooklyn, 
came the ever friendly smile of Mai. After a year at Howard and two at RPI, Mai de- 
cided that only an Academy education could give him the basis for the Naval career 
that he wanted so much. Leaving behind his college white bucks, Mai devoted his 
efforts to such pastimes as the sub squad during Plebe and Youngster years. In sports, 
Mai always seemed to end up on the cross country team, an echo of the many track 
medals won back at Boys High. Though his fresh appearance would lead you to believe 
he is much younger than he really is, his mature judgement can never be mistaken as 
indicative of the fine leadership he will show when he enters the submarine service 
upon graduating.

Bundy came to the Academy after two years at New York State Maritime College 
where he became well prepared for the Navy way of life. Switching from soccer, 
Bundy took advantage of his solid build and became active in the Judo Club. Monopo- 
lizing on his strength and speed, Bundy bounced many larger men on the canvas. 
Besides being active in judo, Bundy has been a member of the Antiphonal Choir, the 
NACA, and the Portuguese Club. Bundy is always quick with a joke or smile and will 
be a big boost to our submarine service upon graduation.

"Butterball" came to USNA from Martin Van Buren High School in Kinderhook, 
N. Y. where he was valedictorian of his class and a four year letter man in sports. 
Known as "Hustlin' John" during Plebe year and "The Eatin'est Youngster in the 
Brigade," "Butter" nevertheless kept up both his academics and sports. A member 
of the Plebe soccer and tennis teams, John now plays varsity soccer. Winters usually 
found him trying to get below 150 pounds for company lightweight football. "Butter" 
was active in the Russian Club and also finds time to sing in the "poolie" choir. A ca- 
reer in Navy Air is his goal for the future.

"Byngo," an outstanding athlete in all sports, will especially be remembered for his 
feats on the Navy lacrosse teams. Although he is noted for his quietness, Bob's friendly 
disposition and sincere personality brightened many a dark moment for all those who 
knew him. Dragging was not a favorite pastime with Bob, but he had a certain semi- 
bashful manner which captured many a feminine heart. The academics presented a 
constant challenge, and Skinny was his leading antagonist. Despite this situation, 
Bob always had a spare moment to help others in trouble, whether it was with books 
or just plain life. He could always be counted on for his honesty and a job well done. 

Geoff, hailing from the Empire State, is a throw-back to the days of wooden sailing 
ships and hardy seamen. His devotion to sailing and his love of the bounding blue 
made him a top notch sailor on both the varsity sailing team and ocean racing team. 
One of the highlights of his sailing career at the Academy was the 1957 Annapolis- 
Newport Ocean Race in which the Academy boats did an outstanding job. Geoff at- 
tacked the academics with the same zeal in which he does everything. The Navy will 
receive an outstanding and devoted line officer upon his graduation.

His determination, erect bearing, and fondness for coffee typify the "New Yorker." 
Seldom seen just sitting around, he was continually on the move. This spirit carried 
to the sporting field in the form of track, and cross country. In food, quantity over- 
weighs quality as proven by his feat of eating six apple dumplings in one sitting Plebe 
year. A lover of good books, Clyde's free time is usually absorbed by reading and 
listening to hi-fi. His social life is about as stable as counterfeit money. For the future, 
the Silent Service should see an untiring worker and an outstanding career officer, in 
Clyde Carter.

Alex's language background furnished him considerable aid in becoming an outstanding 
student in Spanish. At the end of Youngster year this ended, however, and he sorely 
missed the opportunity to practice his second language. Alex is one of those rare un- 
fortunates who is genuinely allergic to P-rades. Each Wednesday afternoon during the 
fall and spring months, he sneezed violently on the dust of Worden Field. He is quite 
interested in aviation, travel, photography, and the New York Yankees, and is obsessed 
with the desire to become an aviator, planning to enter Naval Flight School immedi- 
ately upon graduation.

Even before his two and one-half years in the Regular Navy, Jack decided to make it 
his career. After tours of duty in California and the Far East, graduation from the 
Academy became the ultimate ambition of this dyed-in-the-wool Navy man. Since 
his entry into our hallowed halls, he has masterminded his way through four years of 
extra instruction and claims his ambition as a career officer incomplete unless he is 
allowed to come back as an instructor and really learn Second Class Skinny. A wit in 
his own sense, he firmly believes that Isaac Newton was a hopeless mental case. 

Hailing from Brooklyn, Mo entered the Academy after two years at Brooklyn Poly- 
technic Institute. A true athlete, his biggest difficulty was trying to find time to play 
all sports. He was heavyweight boxing champion Plebe summer. Plebe year he played 
basketball, crew, and football. Youngster year found him exercising his long legs at 
the high jump pit. During his last two years he participated in basketball, track and 
made a reputation as a high jumper. Academics were no trouble and there was always 
plenty of rack time. Each hop found Mo with a different beauty. With visions of Navy 
Air, Mo leaves the Academy to attempt his lifelong ambition.

Cos left the bright lights and good times of New York and headed for the "Country 
Club of the South." He was never sure exactly what he got himself into, but while 
here he developed an intense love for the Executive Department and the sixth wing 
rear terrace. Almost as outstanding as his ability to march, was the job he did in the 
boxing ring, football field and on the basketball court. His two favorite pastimes 
could easily be listed as dragging and the rack. The Navy, via Pensacola, and flight 
training seem to be in the offing for Cos. 




227 




Seeing Dick drag almost every weekend gave us a good clue as to his former Alma 
Mater, Queens College in New York City. Carefree, yet knowing when to be serious, 
he brought along a refreshing attitude to Navy. Whether playing bridge, writing for 
the Trident, playing company soccer, or sailing with the gang on the "Freedom," 
Dick always demonstrated the versatile talents which are responsible for his popularity 
with his classmates, and which will be certain to make him a valuable addition to any 
service command.

Hank was the Marine Corps' ambassador to the Brigade. He never let his blue and 
gold cover the eagle, globe, and anchor to any extent. He was one of the most active 
of all mids and could always be counted on to come through with an idea or an article 
to promote some cause. Anyone within rifle shot distance would have sworn that he 
must be either from Tun Tavern or the ballistic labs in Springfield. Hank's analytical 
mind was equally at home writing a critique on some Marine Corps battle, discussing 
the performance of his favorite pistol, or verbally attacking a major news issue of 
the day. Above all, he was able to keep a sense of humor and maintain a human touch 
beneath the service uniform. 

Dave's talent for doing things right stayed by him during his USNA years. His ability 
to put a softball where he wanted it helped his company to the softball championship 
and his ability to put his grades where he wanted them stood him high in his class. 
His smile and his daily crossword puzzle were his most familiar companions around 
the Hall, but he was always able to find more animated ones on liberty. Though torn 
between wings and dolphins, Dave's dependability will make him welcome whether 
in the skies above or the waters below.

Jim, a native of the big city, came to the Academy from Cardinal Hayes High School 
where he excelled in track for three years. His track ability increased during his stay 
at the Academy and he developed into an outstanding quarter-miler for the Navy 
harriers. Known as "the man who studies best in a horizontal position," Jim bewildered 
his classmates by maintaining a starring academic average with a minimum of ex- 
pended effort. Good music could usually be heard coming from his room, although 
now and then his music taste became a little erratic. Graduation will find Jim wearing 
ensign bars, for he plans to go Navy Line.

Reliable and ever dependable, Angy will be a valuable asset to the Marine Corps 
after graduation. His personal integrity and high ideals of fellowship with his shipmates 
are attributes which reflect his likable character. Latin music and art are among his 
favorite hobbies. Before his entrance to the Academy, he spent eighteen months in the 
Marine Corps, reaching the rank of corporal prior to his discharge. While at home on 
annual leave, Angy devotes many hours to his favorite sport of motorcycle riding. 
Upon graduation the Fleet will be losing a fine junior officer.

Jim entered the Academy after attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for two 
years. While there he was a member of Theta Xi Fraternity and thereupon brought 
much fraternal spirit with him. Though soft spoken, Jim was always ready to back 
his words. He was an active participant in two of the Academy's roughest sports, 
boxing and lacrosse. Jim always did well in his academics and on weekends could usual- 
ly be found with a pretty girl. After leaving the Academy, Jim plans a career in Navy 
Line. 

"Big p-work in Skinny tomorrow, boys, got any magazines to read?" Noel was just 
that easy-going. The only studying he did was to help his classmates. Yet each time 
the Superintendent's List came out, Noel's name would appear on it. He rounded his 
sport seasons out with steeplechase, squash, water polo, and the rack . . . the last sport 
being, by far, the most popular. His ready wit and love of a good joke could always be 
counted on when things looked darkest. A definite asset and credit to the service ... a 
wonderful personality . . . he'll go to the top while making his career.

John came to Navy via Long Island's Stonybrook Prep. At Navy he spent many a 
leisure hour lifting his weights or admiring a collection of non-regulation gear. He never 
let academics keep him from writing his OAO and possessed no love for the academic 
departments. To this very day, he considers his victories over them an upset. Conversely, 
the succession of many amazing stunts he put over on the Executive Department can 
only be regarded as a smashing victory. John's many friends at Navy will always re- 
member him for his outlook on the brighter side of life. 



229 





Paul is one of New York's most popular contributions to the Class of '59. Everyone in 
the company knew him by his jovial smile and boisterous laugh, despite the efforts of 
the Executive Department to cure him. During his four years at Navy, he was a stal- 
wart on the line for the Sixth Battalion football team and a member of the varsity 
pistol team. His interests, however, were not limited to sports, and he was quite the 
ladies' man and a fine singer in the Catholic Choir.

Dave played the clarinet in various civic organizations prior to coming to the Academy 
and continued in this field by playing in the Naval Academy Concert Band. His literary 
ability contributed immeasurably to his active part of writer and editor of his company 
paper. Dave was always well-liked by his classmates and the members of his company, 
a situation which is well understood considering his congenial personality. His winning 
smile, conservative attitude and seriousness of purpose, spell success in whatever he 
endeavors. Dave will always be a credit to the Naval Academy and the Naval Service. 

Ron came to the Academy after a year at Columbian Prep. He played a year of 150 
pound football and rowed crew, both of which were highlighted by his struggle to lose 
twenty-five pounds. At the beginning of each season, he always managed to "make the 
weight," which gives some small idea of his will power. Ron could do just about any- 
thing when he put his mind to it. During the off season, he relaxed and took things 
easy. "Going out with the boys" was his favorite pastime except when a certain femme 
put her foot down. His likable personality and rather remarkable sense of wit made him 
a welcome addition to the ranks of '59.

Known best as an interesting conversationalist, it was always a pleasure to participate 
in a bull session with Bill. His quick wit and good sense of humor made him welcome in 
any crowd. Many will remember him for all the extra instruction they received in 
French, which Bill speaks fluently. Others will remember him for his willingness to do 
any favor asked of him regardless how much work and effort it entailed. Maintaining a 
high average, Bill was able to devote much of his time to extracurricular activities. He 
was in the choir, Masqueraders, and on the varsity track and cross country teams. Bill 
intends to seek a career in submarines where he is sure to be successful.

Jon came to Crabtown on Severn's sunny shore and tried to line his name up and be 
the most "Ivy" mid in the Brigade. He claims he is the owner of the only blue service 
with flap pockets, through buttons and a vent in the back. Although he has a star av- 
erage, the only place in which he really excels is the social department. Jon worked 
hard to belong to the crew team in all its divisions — battalion, Plebe and varsity. 
Another fine man has been made for the Navy.

Ron was nearly settled to a quiet life of studying civil engineering at Rensselaer Poly- 
technic Institute when adventure called him to Annapolis. As one of those fortunate 
individuals who always seems to have time to spend on things other than academics, he 
managed to utilize many of his talents. Most of this spare time was spent playing var- 
sity soccer and lacrosse. Even greater than his appetite was his love for Naval Avia- 
tion. Wherever there was fun and frolic you were apt to find him. He was always a 
fine friend to have around. Wherever his career takes him, Ron is sure to make a hit 
with his quick wit and winning smile. 

Ray came directly to Navy Tech from high school in his home town located in the 
foothills of the Catskill Mountains. While participating in such activities as intramural 
soccer and the Reception Committee, he also proved that a five-year man can star 
academically. His ready smile and easy-going personality enabled him to win many 
friends at the Academy. We know this ability, coupled with his will to succeed, will in- 
sure success in his career as a Naval officer.

Other interests to be included are Catholic Choir, Model RR Club, and Plebe and 
company cross country. His organizational abilities are responsible for his being make- 
up editor of the Lucky Bag. Tom is looking forward to a flying career and we all 
hope success and 20/20 will follow him in the future as they have in the past.

Walt came to us directly from high school and took so well to the system that he de- 
cided to stay on for a fifth year and promptly became an ex-member of '58. During 
his stay at Usnay, he found time to belong to the Aeronautical Engineering Club, 
NACA, German Club and was in the Masqueraders' production of Stalag IJ as 
the famed Corporal Schultz. He could usually be found on the soccer field from 1600 
right through until 1830 in the afternoon. It will be straight Navy Line for this cheer- 
ful Dutchman.

After graduating from high school, John started toward his goal to become a United 
States Naval Officer. He brought with him a fine academic background which he main- 
tained at the Naval Academy. Along with his academic abilities, he was very active in 
varsity and intramural sports. John's desire to be a Naval Officer, even after a four- 
year period of observing all of the branches and phases of military life, makes him stand 
out as the model midshipman. Upon graduation his choice of service will parallel the 
slogan; "Navy Line is mighty fine." 

Si originally hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, although he can claim any number of 
other states as his home. His many varsity letters won in high school and at Wyoming 
Seminary in basketball, football, and track can attest to his athletic ability. Despite 
his constant pursuit by the Executive Department, he managed to incorporate a lot 
of spirit into his four years here. Sports occupied much of his time with the rack run- 
ning a close second. For the future it looks like the Marine Corps for Si, and wherever 
he goes his great personality and warm smile are sure to win him many friends.

John's discerning New York eye always found a pretty girl, many of whom he intro- 
duced to the Brigade via the Log, through the combined effects of his excellent cam- 
era work and his easy-going personality. His unfulfilled dream of contentment was a 
half-filled pipe, some dixieland on the turntable to keep out the mice and a tall glass of 
something cool. John still hasn't gotten the word that "man just wasn't meant to 
fly" so we wish him the best of luck in his intended career in Navy Air.

Rochester's loss was Navy's gain when Bob came to Bancroft in that fateful summer of 
'55. When Log wasn't in the hospital Youngster year, he was actively engaged in 
company football and soccer. Never one to neglect his studies, Bob still found plenty 
of time to exploit his favorite occupation, sleeping. Log always enjoyed a good time, 
especially cruises, where he found many outlets to wile away the hours. If fortunes will 
have it, Navy's air arm will gain Bob's loyalty.

Tony hails from the land of the blackboard jungle and many trees, a city on the water- 
front, Brooklyn. The switch from such a cosmopolitan atmosphere was easy and Chico 
settled down to absorbing the mishaps of life with a grin, beating the Supe's List and 
his bongo and dreaming of the rack. Navy saw Tony chalk up two years service with 
the lightweight crew team. Months of effort of accent-breaking were lost when he went 
before the lights as "Animal" in the Masquerader's production of Stalag IJ. Tony 
had a reputation of being one of the hardest-working swains in the Twenty-third and 
did some memorable work as Lucky Bag and Newman Club representative. His foggy 
eyes have led him to consider the Civil Engineering Corps as a promising future. 

John had all but given up hope of coming to Navy with the Class of '59. Once at USNA, 
however, he discovered lacrosse and also acquired the reading habit. Both pursuits 
he followed with much success, playing varsity lacrosse for three years and standing 
respectably high in Bull. A teacher at heart, it was not difficult to find him showing a 
classmate how an ordnance mechanism functioned or just what to look for in the next 
Navigation p-work. The Plebes found him an interesting mentor too. An authority on 
USNA geography, "Macabee" believed that if a Plebe could do nothing else by the 
time he became a Third Classman, he should be able to conduct a guided tour of the 
Academy grounds. Equally well informed on submarines, John envisions himself wear- 
ing dolphins in a few short years.

Rick has, by nature, the air of a gentleman, the smile of the happy, the disposition of

Although straight from high school, Rick quickly gained experience and friendship, 
which has brought him mature judgment and enthusiasm. Such traits have made his 
contributions to the Reception Committee, Newman Club, and Public Relations Com- 
mittee far more than acceptable. Besides his interest in boxing, Rick's fascination of 
life and people have brought into our realm, a true all-round sportsman.

Art came to the Academy after a carefree year at Columbian Prep. He was not new to 
the military, having spent thirteen months in the Navy Reserve, so he had no trouble 
getting into the swing of things. As a sports sideline, Art played company volleyball 
for four years. The rest of his time was devoted to either batt or varsity gymnastics, 
x^rt, witty and a hard worker, will be an asset to the Navy as he leaves our hallowed

After two years of frat life and parties at St. Lawrence University, Wayne decided to 
head for greener pastures and entered Usnay. Called "Dip" in college, he became 
known as "Snail" at Navy, although his proficiency in basketball, football, and volley- 
ball can justify his college name. In his spare time his many hobbies included hunting, 
fishing, sports cars, and letter writing. His favorite course is P. T., and his pet peeve 
is books. Wayne was well-known around the Third Company for his ready laugh and 
good stories. His plans after graduation include a gal, the Navy, and a Corvette. 

As Irish as his name, Bob came from out of the wilds of the "asphalt jungle" and 
brought with him the determination and ability to insure success in his chosen career. 
An enjoyable character to have around, his interests lie in a variety of things. He en- 
joyed sailing, along with the blue trampoline, for an afternoon's recreation and had 
his own cue stick for a game of pool. Bob's pitching arm helped the company softball 
team and his high scores enabled the Fifth Battalion Bowling team to win a champion- 
ship two consecutive years. The Navy will receive another fine^officer when Bob joins 
the Fleet.

little trouble with academics, he filled his spare time with membership in the Foreign 
Relations Club, frequent correspondence to the OAO and yeoman work on the com- 
pany 150 pound football team. Best known by his roommates for his "care" packages 
from home and his Academy acquired vocation of barber, "par excellence," Bob 
proved himself to be well suited for the rigorous Academy life. With a weather eye 
cast toward the Marine Corps, a desire to be a family man and the ability to get a 
job done, Bob has a lot to look forward to in the Navy. 




234 



Dick, or "Squirrel," as he was known around the Hall, was ready to participate in 
anything at the drop of a hat. A well-rounded athlete, he skillfully played many sports. 
He never seemed to take the academic side of life too seriously. When, however, he 
did get around to studying something, it was usually women. One of his favorite hob- 
bies was trying to outwit the Executive Department. He would sometimes ponder 
this problem for hours before giving up in despair. All in all, Dick was the fellow who 
was ready for a party at any time, and on every occasion tried to get things moving 
with his witty remarks.

Bob has been known throughout the Brigade as the voice of WRNV. He is one of the 
most enterprising members of our class. His foresight in radio work both in Bancroft 
Hall and on cruise has made the days brighter for all. Beside devoting much of his 
time to studies and radio, he played many musical instruments and always had time 
to give friendly advice to his classmates. Bob hopes to fly, and his determination is 
sure to end in success. 

Frank had to leave his high school graduation party early in order to arrive at USNA 
on time, and he landed with a steam engine under one arm and a copy of "Model 
Engines" under the other. A mid who never "sweated the academics," he pursued his 
hobbies and varsity lightweight crew with great vigor. He sang in the Chapel Choir 
and through his hard work, a musical string ensemble was formed. "Paddle," as he was 
known to some close friends, is anxiously awaiting the day when he will win his wings 
in Navy Air.

Although coming to the Academy directly from high school, Guy managed to excel 
in academics to the tune of a 3.4 average. Wearing stars wasn't his only strong point as 
he sparked the varsity tennis team and saw duty as an end on the company 150 pound 
football team. Somehow his brains and athletic prowess never seemed to score with 
the fairer sex, but we are all sure that one of these days the right one will surely come 
along. Guy's outside interests included skin-diving, his dog Duke and the Brooklyn 
Dodgers. Everyone's pal and a lover of life in any way, Guy is destined for success in 
anything he does.

A little too much sand at Pensacola convinced Reeg that he should have been a beach- 
comber. One of Navy's greatest swimmers, he brought many points home for the Blue 
and Gold against some of the nation's best. Active in the Newman Club and various 
extracurricular activities, Reeg's personality gained him a spot on the Fourth Class 
Detail during Second Class summer. He will be a welcome addition to any wardroom 
in the Fleet in the future.

"Reif" is the nickname of this big fellow who is looking your way, who came to the 
Naval Academy via Baldwin High School and Columbian Prep. He contributed great- 
ly to the Naval Academy, being an ail-American and recipient of the Maxwell Trophy. 
Being friendly, he was well-liked throughout the Brigade and is more at home in the 
horizontal rather than the vertical position. He is sure to be an asset to the Fleet and 
a success in whatever he does. 

Herb was a real Navy fan. Keenly interested in team sports, he was a talented forward 
for his company soccer team. His true spirit showed, however, when he was out backing 
up the Navy teams. Unselfishly devoting much of his time to the Public Relations 
Committee, Herb took scores and statistics in order that everyone might read about 
our teams in the paper the next day. As a company bridge ace, he was always in popular 
demand. Sunday morning found Herb leaving an hour ahead of most of the Methodist 
Church party to go to choir practice. A sincere Christian, Herb took an active interest 
in his religion, and thus we shall always have a fond memory for him.

Lou came to the Naval Academy right after graduating from high school. The hectic 
schedule of Plebe summer soon had him on the run, but he finally settled down to life 
in the fourth estate without too much trouble. Since then he has had a few close calls 
with the academic departments, but has proven he can come out on top when it really 
counts. In sports, he leaned toward the intramural program and did fairly well. After 
graduation, Lou will provide the Fleet with the type of young officer which will keep 
our Navy on top for many years. 



236 




Before entering the Naval Academy, Dick was in the Naval Reserve. Having done a 
great deal of small boat sailing on Long Island Sound prior to entering, he quickly 
took to the Boat Club and spent many a funfilled weekend sailing on the Bay. Some of 
his other favorite pastimes were hiking, camping, stamp collecting and swimming. He 
is especially interested in the engineering fields of aviation and hopes to enter aviation 
after graduation. A hard worker, possessing a persistent personality, Dick should go 
far in achieving his ambitions in life.

With three years in the Naval Reserve and another at the University of Rochester, 
Fen was a natural for the Academy. His interests were many, including music, archi- 
tecture, and his progressive redesigning of his ever-expanding hi-fi set. As for sports, 
Fen regularly upheld the company honor in intramurals, having participated in cross 
country, steeplechase, and volleyball. In the Chapel Choir, he would often be seen at 
the head of the procession. On the academic side, Fen managed to hold his own in all 
subjects, but always showed more of an interest toward EH&G than the sciences. 
With an eye toward the sky, he hopes to become a Navy flier. 

USNAR has failed in its attempt to tame this jovial Irish tenor of the Chapel Choir. 
Bob's lack of demos only testifies to the presence of that proverbial "golden horse- 
shoe," for we all know the Executive Department would give its right arm to learn of 
just a few of his escapades. Excessive abundance of energy and vitality characterize 
"Rober" as an eager beaver in any athletic and conditioning endeavor. His mile-wide 
grin and sincere love of life make this lad's companionship desired by all. Bob's bet- 
ter-than-average intellectual ability, enjoined with undaunted determination and un- 
equaled spirit, is certain to propel him to unsurpassed heights on his Navy wings.

From the banks of the Hudson River came this quick-witted midshipman. "Towner," 
before migrating to Annapolis, spent a year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where 
he served in the NROTC unit there. His well-liked personality and ability to get along 
with people carried over from his high school days through his four years at the 
Academy. Since academics were quite easy for Ken, he enjoyed many hours of reading 
favorite war novels. Ken's athletic prowess is not lacking, for during each sports sea- 
son he played company softball, football or batt soccer. We know that whichever 
branch of the service he enters after graduation, Ken will succeed.

Doug came to Navy from Clarence, where he earned high school letters in football, 
wrestling and track. His sports interests at Navy were directed mainly toward wres- 
tling in which he co-captained the Plebe team and later earned himself a starting posi- 
tion with the varsity. Academics never afforded Doug much trouble and his profi- 
ciency kept him well up in the top third of his class, even though his desk was the 
origin of many boisterous complaints. Doug's keen sense of humor and love of practical 
jokes, coupled with his likable personality, should carry him to success in anything 
he undertakes.

By the time Mike entered the Academy he had already established a fine record both 
academically and athletically. At Forrest Hills High he excelled in baseball and basket- 
ball, making the all-Queens baseball team in his senior year. Upon entering the Acad- 
emy, he pursued his desire to be a standout in athletics and did so in fine style. For three 
years he played a fancy first base for the Navy varsity. Academy baseball fans will 
remember his powerful and timely hitting. As an "ace" dragger, Mike always found 
time to date many a pretty girl before finally settling down Second Class year. Among 
his leadership characteristics can be found the sincerity which Mike's classmates 
think will take him far. 

Dick entered the Academy upon completion of high school in 1955 under a qualified 
alternate's appointment from the Academy. In high school, sports were but a hobby and 
an interest, yet he expanded them into a full time job on the varsity track and cross 
country teams at the Academy. A member of the Aeronautical Engineering Club, Dick 
also enjoys music, with a deep interest in progressive jazz, conservative men's clothing 
and good literature. After graduation he plans to remain in the Naval Service either in 
submarines or Naval Aviation.

Will's transition from Auburn College to Navy posed no great academic problem. Mus- 
ing on the prospect of being a professional student, Will managed to maintain a jump 
on the academics at Navy, with the exception of a few brushes with the Skinny Dept. 
Will's proficiency in Russian was only excelled by his ability to "snow" a drag. His 
quiet confidence and diplomacy were too much for the fairer sex. His presence was 
always much in evidence when the company teams moved into action. We will long 
remember Will for his ready wit and spirit and are confident the Navy will benefit 
from his future service.

After spending a year at Brown University, Frank packed his track shoes and traveled 
south to the banks of the Severn. As Plebe year began, he turned to his favorite pas- 
time of running and soon became a stalwart on the cross country and track teams. His 
prowess on a cinder track made him one of Navy's finer runners. Frank never found 
the academics too strenuous and always came through with flying colors in his en- 
counters with them. With his willing attitude and determination, he will be an asset 
wherever his career takes him.

Dick Zembrzuski's Brooklyn accent was a dead giveaway, and he soon became known 
as the "typical football player." But behind this tough front, Zeke was both an above- 
average student and an excellent all-around athlete. He made many friends and always 
took care of his own. He could be depended on to inject a little excitement into the 
dull routine. He failed to hide his active interest in the Navy and usually managed to 
double his daily sleep allotment. Zeke should be gifted with a very active future.

A Navy Junior, Al came to USNA via the Naval Service and a year at Columbian 
Prep. He took an active interest in sports at the Academy with his preference being 
football. He claims fishing in upstate New York is the best way to spend a summer 
leave, so long as the OAO is along. Al always seemed to find time to take life easy, and 
his appreciation for popular music helped ease the wounds inflicted by the system. 
Looking forward to spending some time in the air, he plans to fly the Navy's jets.

Bill came to us well prepared to meet the challenge he knew he would find at Navy. 
And meet it he did, compiling an excellent academic record and devoting much time to 
company sports and to managing the varsity crew team. "Jefe," as he was called by 
many classmates, truly lived up to the English translation of his Spanish nickname, 
for he was a "chief" in all he undertook. Well-liked by his fellow mids, and the women 
too, he was always a good man to have on your side. With seldom a harsh word for 
anyone except possibly an unsuspecting Plebe, Bill seemed to find the life at Navy 
Tech quite enjoyable.

Dave came to the Naval Academy on an appointment from the Eleventh Congressional 
District of North Carolina. After arriving on the shores of the Severn, he became very 
active, whether it was playing a sax for the Concert Band, building a model in the 
hobby shop or playing the hot corner on the company softball team. In the meantime, 
Dave found time to study hard enough to earn his stars. Upon graduation, the Fleet 
will receive a confirmed "Naval Air type" officer.

On graduating from Mount Airy High School, Leon entered the Naval Academy to ac- 
complish an important phase of his educational enlightenment. He enjoyed partici- 
pating in gymnastics, singing in the Presbyterian Church choir and engaging in such 
pleasant diversions as seasonal drag sailing and being a consistent member of the 
"flying squadron." Social insight, and a keen psychological interest in everyone with 
whom he associated, achieved for him a great number of friends. More than anything 
else he enjoyed being with people and cultivating their friendship. Truly, Navy Line 
was small payment in return for the pleasurable years spent at Canoe U. 

After graduation from high school, Skip came directly to the Naval Academy and 
brought with him an outstanding athletic record, a love for soft music, and a southern 
charm which made him a welcome member of the Brigade. He played three years of 
150-pound football and was on the company fieldball and softball teams. Skip plans 
on entering the Supply Corps after receiving his commission. His sincereness won for 
him the respect, admiration and everlasting friendship of all his classmates.

Pete entered the Naval Academy after a year of engineering at North Carolina State. 
His academic record, as well as his athletic ability, followed him here from the Tar 
Heel State. Almost every afternoon, he could be found on the Severn with the light- 
weight varsity crew. Academics were no problem to Pete as his marks were always a 
credit to his class and company. Most of his spare time was spent writing his OAO or 
with the Concert Band. Music is one of Pete's favorite pastimes. His tastes run any- 
where from Fats Domino to Mozart. With a great record behind him and an aggressive 
outlook to whatever lies ahead, "Milt's" future in his chosen career of Naval Aviation, 
is sure to be a great success.

The smiling and friendly face of this son of North Carolina adorned Mother Bancroft 
for four years. Although an ex-marine, she has him undecided between the Silent Serv- 
ice or a position with the Navy's "Stove-pipe Jockeys." Griff's escapades at parties 
after the Baltimore football games will always be a legend in the history of the Bri- 
gade. No matter which branch he finally decides on, he will definitely be an asset to 
our country.

Coming to the Academy from Gastonia, Roger got right into the midst of activities. 
Plebe summer he held down the "hot corner" on the baseball team and continued his 
aggressive play. on the diamond the following spring. A leg injury Third Class year 
brought his baseball playing at the Academy to a premature close but he was a welcome 
addition on the company teams. On the weekends here at Navy, Roger could usually 
be found writing his "one and only" or supporting the Blue and Gold athletic squads. 
Because of his assiduous efforts and perseverance, he is sure to succeed in any endeavor 
which he chooses. 

Being the southern gentleman of the Fifth Company, Si spent a long four years away 
from the cool verandas of his beloved homeland. Unfortunately, he could not use his 
proficiency at golf to help him around the obstacle course and consequently, much of 
his rack time was spent on Farragut field. He seldom allowed academics to interfere 
with his dragging. Adhering to Naval tradition, he had a girl in every port. Si has a 
deep interest in a progressive Navy and hopes to add his many talents to the Fleet.

Ed came to Annapolis from North Carolina, after spending his last year of high school 
losing his southern accent in Andover, Massachusetts. Turning down an appointment 
to the first Air Force Academy class, he graced the halls of Bancroft. Ed was a firm be- 
liever in variety, indulging in everying from Plebe swimming to most of the company 
sports. His belief in variety was further evidenced in his many selections of girls and 
hobbies. Work on the Log also consumed much time, but it did not interfere with 
academics, in which he stood very high, being on the Superintendent's List and the 
proud wearer of stars.

John arrived at Navy Tech in June of 1955 via a dubious route — the Air Force. As 
an airman, he saw duty in Japan before being selected for the Russian interpreter's 
school at Syracuse University. So there was still a bit of college life in his system. 
John split his time between dragging, music, Newman Club and Russian Club activi- 
ties, company sports, and academics. His questionable voice can still be heard ringing 
from the shower with the refrains of "April in Paris." His diligence and earnest interest 
in everything he undertook at the Academy should make him capable to handle any 
difficulties which he might face as a future submariner.

constructive as some, he thought it much more interesting. Very well liked in the 
company, he was always ready to give a helping hand, especially when it came to 
fixing friends up with blind drags. A good athlete, Lloyd was a great help to the batt

session, a good laugh, or entertainment, Ray made an ideal classmate. Ray's hobbies 
were tennis, hunting, and going home on leave, which he seemed to do best. His pro- 
fessional interest lies in submarines, which he hopes on joining sometime after gradua-

Mike's experience in sailing on Lake Erie proved a valuable asset in making him a 
high ranking man on the sailing team. He put in many hours of hard work on academ- 
ics, the Glee Club, and wrestling, but still had lots of time for pursuit of lighter sub- 
jects. He became quite proficient in the art of dragging, and seldom dragged anyone 
but the fairest of the fair. He could always be counted on to cheer you up by his pres- 
ence, or cause you to forget your troubles with the humor of his own. Mike is a deter- 
mined and enthusiastic person and should make a fine officer, wearing wings or in the 
Line.

sense of humor that is apparent in his Log series "There Oughta' be a Reg," is one 
of Stu's outstanding characteristics. Besides being a member of this publication, Stu 
was also active in Plebe indoor track and company soccer, steeplechase, and fieldball. 
He will go into Navy Line after graduation.

and smashed the Skinny courses. Although the Bull final usually threw him for a loss, 
you could always count on him for a 3.9 in Skinny. Between science fiction books, he 
occasionally submitted one of his theories on relativity to the Electrical Engineering 
Department. Being a scholar and a gentleman, Bos should make a fine officer and be a 
success in everything he undertakes. 

After spending some time at the University of Miami of Ohio, Chet reported for duty 
at USNA. He soon established the reputation of being an outstanding member of the

Navy and provide another fine officer for the Fleet.

Don Dunn was ushered into this world on the 19th of June 1935, but there were no 
side boys at hand and Big Don deplored the situation. As soon as he got his man's 
growth he set off for the Naval Academy to rectify the mistake. The First Company 
welcomed the big fellow and put him to work. His afternoons were spent mowing 
down tenpins or knocking the ball out of the softball park. Some leisure moments 
were left and these were happily spent at the chess board or a sketch pad. The Brigade 
Activities Committee, however, used up most of his time. Don is now looking forward 
to a chance at a really man-sized job in the Fleet.

rough, Chance got good grades in all his subjects. His speciality was electricity, as he 
was in electronics school when the call of the Severn reached him. In his spare time 
Chance could be found over in the gym working out on the flying rings or in the con- 
ditioning room engaged in his judo. The Marine Corps' gain will be our loss, and we 
will look forward to seeing Chance at Quantico after graduation. 

Toledo lost an avid "mud hen" fan when Bill left to attend the Naval Academy. Since 
Portuguese lasted only two years, his high spirit and keen interest sent his academic 
average soaring. Any classmate ailing in academics was always glad to see "just plain

of "Good Morning, Merry Sunshine" on his lips, Bill spent four happy and enjoyable 
years on the Severn.

Toby came to the Academy from St. Marks School and brought with him much of the

with, he was the source of much humorous satire. His abilities far exceeded the norm. 
Outstanding in sports, he lettered in crew, dragging, extra duty, and was a devout 
member of the Russian Club and Reception Committee. Planning to join the "Silent 
Service," Toby did much to spread submarine knowledge among the Fourth Class. 
As a midshipman, he embodied the highest and loosest of ideals, yet he continually 
showed the abilities of the fine officer he will make.

In the summer of '55, around the fourth of July, a happy-go-lucky fella' by the name 
of George Garton rolled into the Academy. Despite the rigors of Plebe summer with its 
different chow and knot-tying, George still kept this same attitude upon entering the 
lion's den of upperclassmen. Even after Plebe year he never lost it. On through his 
years here George was a big aid to the Log and Splinter distribution department, 
helping to keep the wheels running smoothly. As for his various interests, the subject 
of women may be classified as his speciality for he was a Casanova of the first degree. 
The future indicates that he will make a career of the submarine service, and can tell 
you almost anything about it.

attract the fairer sex, and it was not unusual to see Harv's face at one of the afternoon 
tea fights. Being a "Dago cut" he took an active interest in the German club. His 
athletic interests were directed mainly toward soccer, but he was always willing to 
help a confused Plebe with difficult sports questions. Harv was attracted by the Sup- 
ply Corps, and is sure to be a success in this field. 

Before coming to USNA, Jack spent two and a half years in the Fleet as part of an 
aviation electronics outfit. At the Academy, his quick sense of humor and easy going 
manner made him well-liked by his classmates. Most of his afternoons were spent on 
the battalion football field or in the wrestling loft. His favorite sports, however, are 
still drinking coffee and reading westerns. His extracurricular endeavors center about 
radio station WRNV where he works on the engineering staff. After graduation, Jack 
wants to go into Navy Air, so it looks like Pensacola for the future.

fortunate to have claimed such a dedicated, likeable, and intelligent officer.

Putting the windy shores of Lake Erie behind him, Don came to the Academy after 
graduating from Willoughby High School in the spring of 1955. Commencing Plebe 
year, Don quickly learned that the Academy was not the "country club" he had en- 
visioned. Adjusting rapidly to his new environment, he went on to make his four year 
stay an outstanding one. "Klooner" lists as his interests, company sports, dragging, 
weekend sailing, and "racking out," with the emphasis on the latter. Don's height 
which always puts him in the upper right hand corner of the company formation, will 
also present a problem to cockpit manufacturers when he arrives at Pensacola.

Navy wings are the present goal of Dick Martin. His keen interest plus an outstanding 
record at USNA should give him a good start in any field. Dick's knack for figuring 
out and understanding the difficult problems of academics, coupled with a natural 
leadership ability, have earned him many friends during his stay at Bancroft. He de- 
voted his extra time to the Antiphonal Choir, Class Secretary and intramural football. 
His hobby was sailing as a crew member on the "Highland Light," where he could be 
found almost any weekend in the spring. To Dick, anything worth doing was worth 
doing well. 

Tim followed his brother to the Naval Academy and started a chain of command in 
the Marvin family. A lot of Tim's spare time was taken up with intramural boxing, 
where he made a good showing with the Fourth Batt boxing team. He found time in a 
busy schedule for work on the Prop Gang in putting on productions with the Mas- 
queraders and Musical Club Shows. Without much difficulty, he managed to remain 
well in the top one hundred of his class. His future plans are with the Navy, preferably 
in the air wing. With his ease and friendly manner, we are certain his future is going to 
be a bright one.

Don is probably the Brigade's greatest authority on unfinished Mau Mau books. As 
anyone will tell you, this 5'i 1 " mid was a pretty good guy to know. "Park" is a mean 
man with a racquet. Having played a year of tennis at Akron University, he graced 
us throughout Plebe year with his victories on the clay and grass. In the winter Don 
played squash and helped the Seventh Company pick up those valuable points. Young- 
ster year and Segundo years turned Don into quite a night driver. The OOD always 
seemed to lose the scent of these nocturnal activities and Don was graduated.

ever to be worn by any class. In other phases of the art field Pres showed excellence, 
his work being in evidence in this Lucky Bag. He also worked on the Trident art 
staff. If his ambition for Engineering Duty is realized, Pres should be a great help in 
keeping our Navy the best-equipped in the world.

Tom, the land-locked Admiral, came to Navy as Columbus, Ohio's contribution to 
national security. Quiet and calm, he worked to get "Silence is Golden" accepted as a 
First Class term paper topic. His chief interest here at Crabtown was the squash 
court, but volleyball and the steeplechase track around Farragut got some time too. 
Truly proud of his photography, it didn't take much to get Tom to break out his 
cruise shots. It was puzzling how Tom got along with women, believing them "a snare 
and a delusion." Tom has decided on some phase of aviation after graduation.

Toledo was Dick's stomping ground before the Navy bug engendered within him a 
desire to go to the sea. It was a wise decision for he met with nothing but success, being 
blessed by his classmates with the alias of "slash." Indeed this extended to a variety 
of sports as well, not the least of which included no small versatility on gymnasium 
parallel bars. Known for having the instinct of a pack rat for collecting, he gathered 
coins, stamps and even string in huge quantities. As many expect of him, he may well 
someday collect Navy honors in the same manner, in great quantities. 

Phil graduated as valedictorian from high school in 1954 and attended DePauw 
University before entering the Academy. He participated in various intramural sports, 
but his main interest was in music. The Glee Club and Chapel Choir formed a large

was an undetermined multitude. We shall all remember Phil for his fine piano playing

Dave's musical abilities were probably his most remembered contribution to the

in the Glee Club, Chapel Choir, and the Musical Club Shows. Those who knew him 
will recall hearing his singing in the passageways of Bancroft Hall. Dave's abilities 
were not limited to music alone, for he was also active in intramural sports. His de- 
sire to become a Naval aviator is justified by the fact that he comes from the air- 
minded city of Dayton, Ohio.

moved into the varsity football team via the JV's and the three-year letterman brack-

Editor of the Lucky Bag. Academically, Pete was a consistent star student, and al- 
ways pulled the extra liberty granted by the privilege of being on the Superintendent's 
List. With Pete's unusual balance of intelligence and practical sense, the Navy will 
be getting a 4.0 officer.

Upon entering the Academy, Sam became active in squash racquets, a sport at first 
foreign to him. His interests, however, were not limited to this alone, as he spent much 
time as circulation manager of the 1959 Trident Calendar. During his leisure hours 
he could be found in the Model Club room enjoying one of his favorite hobbies. For 
those who knew him, his record collection and unfailing sense of humor have many 
times brightened the dark ages. Upon graduation, Sam hopes to continue his military 
career in the Marines.

Prior to entering the Academy, Jerry spent a year at Bullis Prep and one at Youngstown 
University, respectively. Upon entering, he quickly displayed his astuteness both aca- 
demically and on the field of intramural sports. During his limited free time he worked 
on Reef Points, the PRC, and WRNV. He was even known to drag occasionally. 
Jerry's main sport interest was football, in which he starred on the battalion team and 
the company heavyweight team. Like many of his classmates, Jerry is looking forward 
to the Supply Corps or CEC. Due to his dexterity in handling any situation, he is 
sure to be successful in any field of endeavor which he will pursue. 





GARY F. WHEATLEY 

Third Company 
Cleveland 

Gary will be remembered primarily for his sparkling sense of humor and his uncanny 
ability to break the same regulations we all broke, without getting frapped by the 
Executive Department. "Wheater" put his all into everything he did whether it was 
studying, climbing rope, climbing to the fourth deck, or squaring away a Plebe. Quite 
the social cut, he was seldom found in the hall on weekends. Gary, a Navy Air fan who 
promises to grace Pensacola with his red hair and sharpness in the near future, is off 
to a good start in becoming a fine officer.

From the barren wastes of Oklahoma, Brownie came to "Crabtown" not knowing 
quite what to expect from the Navy. After four years of Academy life he has made 
many friends, and has been a valuable asset to all sports squads of which he has been a 
member. His love for football saw him playing two years on the company and battalion 
teams, which earned him an annual rest at the Naval Academy Hospital. Brownie's 
only wish is that after 30 years of flying, he will grow at least two inches.

Oklahoma has a reputation for producing the best of everything and Fred is no ex- 
ception. From high school, he went to the Universities of Michigan, Oklahoma, and 
Oklahoma City. While at the latter, he served as reading clerk in the Oklahoma Legisla- 
ture. Fred's spare time is spent at his favorite avocation, debating. He has been to the 
National Debate Championships, which he won in 1955. Fred is also a squash and ten- 
nis enthusiast, and he does these as excellently as he does everything else. If all goes 
well, Fred hopes to enter the Intelligence Service and make it his career.

Perry came east from Ponca City, whence he always received an unbelievable quantity 
of mail. Black is the day when "Pinky" allows anything to dampen his natural pleasant- 
ness toward everyone (Plebes excepted). His superior tenor voice, which brought him 
much acclaim, has contributed to the Glee Club, Antiphonal Choir, and the Musical 
Club Shows. Although quite a good wrestler, he has preferred to join the mass mayhem 
of company sports, soccer and volleyball in the main. Prior to joining the Brigade, 
Perry spent one year, a month, and seventeen days in the United States Naval Reserve. 

Groomer hails from the Sooner State and, as is typical of all Oklahomans, he is vastly 
proud of his state and their football team. Little persuasion is needed to start him on a 
long narration of the merits of either. Before beginning his Naval career, Bob spent a 
year at East Central State College in Ada, Oklahoma, where he was on the Dean's 
List. Bob spent a good deal of time working with the Brigade Activities Committee 
and for WRNV. His driving ambition got him the position of program manager shortly 
after joining the station. His shows are well known throughout the Brigade for their 
quality. The challenge of the Naval service will be met capably when Bob joins the 
Fleet.

Harold "Doc" Lee came from Oklahoma to join the group of young Naval heroes 
known as the Class of '59. When not engaged in intramural sports, he was attending 
meetings of the French and Aeronautical Engineering Clubs, or working on his vast 
system of "gouges." He was never able to convince a prof that knowing the answer 
to last year's quiz was as good as knowing this year's. He did, however, have better 
luck convincing a nurse from Oklahoma he was the only midshipman really worth 
knowing. If he worries as much about success as he did about her letters, the sky's the 
limit in his chosen career.

Jack, who came straight to USNA from Classen High School, has been one of the hard 
working members of our class. An avid football player and fan, he played intramural 
150 pound football. As his company's representative on the Class Crest and Ring com- 
mittee, and as an artist for the Log, he showed his mastery with the pen. He put 
forth the maximum effort, both in studies and in being squared away, and is sure to do 
a fine job in the Navy.

"Sooner born, Sooner bred, and when he dies he'll be a Sooner dead." To hear Jack 
talk about Oklahoma makes a person wonder why he ever left his beloved state to 
join the Navy. Jack never tires of hunting stories and can tell you anything you want 
to know about guns from a 16 incher to a .45. At the Academy, Jack's hunting was con- 
fined to the female of the species, but he always managed to steer clear of any entangling 
alliances. His favorite sports, eating, sleeping, and blondes, will probably make the 
rest of his life short but sweet. 

Ozzie came to the city on the Severn from out Oklahoma way. Having spent two years 
as a member of the Class of '57, he joined us in the fall of '55 with the latest gouge, a 
decorated B-robe and two years of Academy experience behind him. Ozzie's well- 
rounded athletic abilities have made him fair prey for all company and battalion 
sport managers looking for a championship team, but during his last two years, Ozzie 
directed his talents toward varsity track. Being an avid hi-fi enthusiast, it was not un- 
usual to find him spending his weekends rebuilding one of his elaborate sets. Ozzie has 
his eyes set high, the sky and Navy Air.

After spending two years at Tulsa University, Dusty turned in his leather jacket 
and blue suede shoes for the blue blouse and black shoes of a midshipman. The switch 
from Joe College to Joe Gish didn't come easy, yet he found the time to star in both 
academics and athletics for four years. On weekends, Dusty was usually seen partak- 
ing in the great Naval Academy pastime of dragging. As for the future, Navy's 
Mach 2 jets are in for fast flying by this speed demon. "A word to the wise," says 
Dusty, "never bet against the Sox."

Coming from the Sooner State, Don's infectious smile and slow drawl have caused him 
to develop many lasting friendships. Studying hard enough to be in the upper third 
of his class, Don never let academics get in the way of a good time. Always an athlete 
at heart, he participated in football, basketball, and golf. His love of, and success with, 
the opposite sex earned him many nicknames during his stay at Mother Bancroft. 
Brimming over with ambition, Don should go far.

made a name for being an outstanding person which he has kept up at the Naval 
Academy. Although he never starred in academics, Gale was a big success on the bat- 
talion handball and squash teams, and his artistic ability contributed a great deal to 
the Log. Besides being a smooth performer on the bongo drums, Gale was pretty 
smooth at the hops with a little soft shoe routine called the fleahop. "Dr. Werner," 
as he was called by his classmates, somehow managed to drag the cutest girls around 
and was a familiar sight in the flying squadron.

Before coming to Canoe U, Jim exercised his analytical mind as editorial writer for 
his high school paper. On weekends he delighted in flushing pheasants and decoying 
unsuspecting ducks. During the summers he took various jobs ranging from records 
keeper for a cemetery company, to pushing tools in oil wells. Leaving high school, he 
looked around for newer and wider horizons and the Navy was his answer. At Usnay 
he learned the value of a comfortable rack, became a connoisseur of pipe smoking, de- 
veloped a deep longing to read a good book without interference, and exhibited an 
understanding of life and people that is sure to carry him far in Navy Line.

Out of the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, trailing Pendleton shirts and levis, came 
Mike one sunny day in 1955 with friendly words and a line of propaganda concerning 
Pendleton. While here at Navy, Mike was the stalwart for many a company sports 
team, primarily those with running involved. His main outside pursuit was dragging, 
since he is one of the few here lucky enough to find the unbeatable combination of 
looks, charm, and proximity in a local femme. During these four years, Mike made a 
lot of close and lasting friends and is sure to do so in the future.

Chris came to the Academy after having spent a year at Oregon State College in the 
engineering school. He got his first taste of the Navy in the NROTC program at col- 
lege. He was very active at Annapolis both in sports and extracurricular activities. 
The highpoint of his activities was his three-year tour on the varsity crew after one 
year with the Plebes. After graduation Chris plans to put his talents to good use in the 
Silent Service. His habits of hard work and perseverance will stand him in good stead 
throughout his career.

Paul is one of the even-tempered men who help to stabilize this world. His steady,

proficiency, he was a member of the Annapolis to Newport sailing race in 1954. Raised 
on an Oregon farm, Paul had a love for hard work which made him a varsity gymnast 
and which will help him in his ambition to be a career Naval officer. Paul hopes to be- 
come a pilot upon graduation. 

Fresh from high school, Chuck came to the Academy with great aspirations of becom- 
ing a Naval officer, little contemplating the forthcoming difficulties of a rigorous 
Plebe year. He survived the perils of this year, however, and participated in such 
sports as Plebe and varsity crew, tennis, and squash during his stay. Besides placing 
much importance upon academic subjects, Chuck also took an active interest in the 
engineering clubs, the Russian Club, and photography. His winning smile and friendly 
personality seemed to have had a way with the girls. Always making the best of week- 
ends we'll never forget the time Chuck invited five girls to the same hop. He learned 
fast.

Bud came to the Academy after attending Columbian Preparatory and wasted no

spent his share of time at the books, he enjoyed company sports and his play and spirit 
were a constant source of inspiration to his teammates. Discovering. the advantages 
of dragging Youngster year, he spent his upperclass years making up for lost time as a 
Plebe. Bud's easy manner and sense of humor are sure to be an added advantage when 
he starts his career in the Fleet.

Dave is one of the few guys who left USNA with the same girl he came with. Of course 
this was not without its price and Dave could be found during much of his spare time 
writing letters. He did, however, find time for many other activities for he could always 
be counted on to bring in that extra point on the company cross-country and steeple- 
chase teams. He was the person to see if you needed something that no one else had. 
His readiness to help out a classmate will carry him far in the Fleet.

Jim came to the Academy directly from high school and found Plebe year most ex- 
hausting during early morning "come arounds" to "Rosy," and bridge games with 
"Bone." Throughout his stay at the Academy, Jim showed an intense love for guns, 
hunting, and the outdoors. This can be seen in the piles of back issues of "American 
Rifleman." The only thing he shows more interest in than guns is a pair of gold wings 
and a job flying Navy fighters. A combination of his talents on the rifle range and in a 
jet should surely make an unbeatable team. 

John came to us, after a year at Reed College, to begin his career as a Naval officer. 
He quickly discovered that academics were no obstacle, although for two years he 
attempted to introduce a new interpretation of the Spanish language to the Dago 
Department. Managing varsity football and crew did not prevent his participating 
in various social functions while at the Academy. His success with the opposite sex 
was apparent to all his friends and his ability to tell a good story made John a welcome 
addition to any conversation.

Hod hails from Oregon and spent one year at Oregon State College where he was en- 
rolled as an NROTC student studying engineering. It was there that he decided to 
come East and take his schooling at USNA. While here he made an enviable record 
both as student and as athlete. After playing Plebe football, he switched the next 
year to the crack 150 pound ball club where he won his first N with the 1956 champion- 
ship team. He also played Lacrosse for his four years at the Academy. Hardly a Super- 
intendent's List came out that Hod was not on despite his many activities as company 
representative. Hod is best known for his sense of humor and his dedication to ideals.

For the four years that "Ab" was at the Academy, he had the distinction of standing 
number one in his class, alphabetically. When he wasn't participating in intramural 
sports, he could usually be found in Mahan Hall practicing for the current Masquer- 
ader's production in which he enjoyed great success. Noted for his keen sense of humor, 
Ab was always there with a joke even though at times his wives threatened a mutiny. 
His idea of perfection was a girl, music, and no formation bells. He always claimed 
that he fell right into the routine the day he arrived at Canoe U and spent the rest of 
his four years picking himself up.

After a year at Penn State, Carl decided that the rigors of life at Usnay couldn't really 
be as tough as advertised. He spent four years trying to prove this. When not toiling 
for the battalion football team or kicking it up on the sub squad, Carl enjoyed hitting 
the pad with the Steam Department's current masterpiece and some rock and roll on 
the hi-fi. Although he will not recommend this method for anyone else, he seems to 
have done well by it. Usually an easy going mid, he insisted that Plebes have a thor- 
ough knowledge of the sports world. A Plebe has yet to be found who could stump him 
on a reasonable sports carry-on question.

Fred was extremely active in athletics as well as in other major functions during his

lege baseball, as was substantiated by his many professional offers. It was truly a 
thrill to visit Lawrence Field on a Saturday afternoon in the warm spring months to 
watch Fred in operation on the mound. He was a member of the Chapel Choir at Navy 
and served as battalion representative. His preference is Navy Line and a career in 
destroyers and submarines.

George came to the Naval Academy by way of Haverford High School and Severn 
Prep. Known for his many interests, he took an active part in battalion and company 
football, volleyball and softball. He was also a valuable addition to the Chapel Choir 
and Glee Club. Much of his free time, outside of dragging, was spent in reading, a 
fact which possibly accounts for his comparative skill in academics. George's congenial 
nature and desire to sacrifice his own time to help a friend have won the respect of all 
who know him.

A biased, rarely compromising native of Philadelphia, Jay came to us and proved 
himself to be a valuable athlete and an outstanding scholar. His many abilities were 
concentrated for the higher achievements of the company or booing an umpire who 
dared make a decision against his Phillies. As on the Main Line, Jay was a proven 
friend to all. As near as can be judged, Jay's pastimes varied only slightly with that 
of any normal male. He was very attached to food, drink, sports, parties and, of 
course, other people's girl friends.

creative ability was demonstrated in the Musical Club Shows. He has a particular 
interest in Italian pizza and Italian women. Robin plans a career in Navy Air. 

Vern's ability in sports in high school carried through to his years here at the Academy. 
He was very successful in his undertakings both athletic and academic at the Academy 
because of his determination and resourcefulness. When he wasn't dragging he enjoyed 
reading and listening to semi-classical music. Before Vern came to the Academy he was 
avidly interested in painting and in building model planes and he even managed to 
build several model planes while he was here.

vided some obstacles, he never had any trouble making friends. Always the life of any 
party, his keen wit could put a smile on anyone's face. The Twenty-first Company was 
greatly aided by Harry's ability in running cross-country and steeplechase. His sin- 
cerity and fine spirit of co-operation will make him an asset to the military organiza- 
tion he is about to join.

Jake came to Navy via Pottsville High and Wyoming Seminary. With a perpetual 
love of sports, Jake contributed to the company and battalion teams; with football, 
lacrosse, and soccer at the head of the list. He had the not-so-rare talent of being able 
to eat like a horse, anytime, anywhere. He took life at Navy in an easy stride and his 
friendly disposition and ready smile made it a pleasure to be with him. A very happy 
career lies in the future for Jake.

Hailing from the carbon center of the world, Harry came to us after two years in the

of the Academy. Harry's friendliness and his mature outlook on life caused people to 
respect his views on many subjects. His quick sense of humor, combined with an un- 
canny knack for saying the right thing at the proper time, gained for him the respect 
of his colleagues. His conscientious effort to do his best is indicative of his positive 
outlook on life. 

Gary is a product of the quaint town of Bellefonte. There is no question in his mind, 
but that Pennsylvania is the greatest State in the Union. Gary is noted for his good- 
natured and pleasing personality and never failed to greet one with a cheerful "hello." 
While at Navy he was in the Concert Band and the German Club. His sports endeav- 
ors lay chiefly in wrestling, and this he did for his battalion. Gary plans a career in 
the Marine Corps in which he is sure to become a rapid success.

Joe "Cass," as he was known from Plebe year, stepped into the Brigade straight from 
twenty years of civilian duty in Philly. A year at Drexel and the Naval Reserve gave 
no premonition of what the rush of Academy life would bring. Never a swimmer be- 
fore, he got in and splashed on the Sub Squad with the best of them, and his success 
was typical of everything he did. Though academics weren't the least of his worries, 
he got by this obstacle and all are sure that Navy Line is getting one of the finest 
officers and "never-give-uppers" ever turned out by USNA.

Dan had a two year head start on USNA at St. John's University in Minnesota. He 
was not only able, but eager to assume the role of a midshipman. His capabilities as a 
leader were quite evident. He was unanimously selected by his classmates to be com- 
pany and battalion representative and is one of the few men who were able to fulfill 
his not always pleasant duties to the satisfaction of all hands. No midshipman ever 
goes through USNA without some academic troubles, and Dan certainly had his 
share but eventually defeated the Skinny Department into submission. His heart 
is set on flying and if his humor holds up, he'll someday have his wings of gold. With a 
smile and a humorous word, Dan has a wonderful future ahead of him in aviation.

Yes, girls, this is Chuck. Coming to the Academy from Charleroi, Chuck brought 
us many tales of the steel mill country. He'll remain most famous in our minds for his 
dragging exploits. A lover of fine music, his most enjoyable times, aside from dragging, 
were spent listening to "misty Miss Christy." "Gatsky," as he is affectionately called, 
showed us his athletic prowess as a stalwart lineman on the football team. His cool, 
suave personality has befriended all of us and he'll be a great asset to the service.

noon from September to June one could find him in Hubbard Hall or on the Severn 
with the varsity crew. This frequenting of the crew house obtained for Guy the nick- 
names of "Oarlocks," "Gus" and "Noble Effort." With rowing everyday and writing 
that daily letter to his OAO, he didn't spend much time on his studies but never had 
to worry about his grades. Guy is an ardent Navy Line candidate, and with his pleasant 
disposition and fine personality, he should be a great success in the career of his choice.

The Marine Corps suffered a great loss when Bill's typewriter was left unarmed. He 
is one of the few men in the history of the Brigade to make it through with the same 
girl. A letter a day was his motto. In the sport line, Bill did an outstanding job with three 
years of cross country and company 150 pound football. The academic departments 
always gave him trouble but he came through with flying colors on the re-exams. 
Marriage and the Marine Corps seem to spell out Bill's future, a very promising one 
indeed. 

Ron invaded USNA from Central Bucks High School in Doylestown. There he was a 
member of the National Honor Society and starred in football. His football career 
was continued at Navy where he played both with the Plebes and lettered in 150 
pound varsity football. He was always ready with a bright smile and a cheery greeting 
to one and all. Academics went well with Ron even though he kept changing his glasses 
and was unable to see what he was reading. Weekends usually found him dragging 
and enjoying steak sandwiches at the N-Club. Ron's determination and "never say 
die" attitude will carry him far up the long road to success.

joined the teams to play varsity and Plebe football and track. As a gridiron athlete, 
the Cotton Bowl in 1958 was his greatest experience. The social studies did not appeal 
to him at all, while the sciences and Naval courses did. Ernie loved good food, especial- 
ly Polish dishes. He also got a great big kick out of dancing the Polka. Upon graduation 
he plans to go to NAS, Pensacola to become an aviator and fly multi-engine planes.

Lenny's trademark of hard work and an undying good humor enabled him to be one of 
the best. A real "coal-cracker" from Pennsylvania, he is instilled with a real love for 
football. Although he found that he was too small for the big game, he set all of his 
efforts in the 150 pound team and starred as a member of this team. His polkas and ac- 
cordion playing were a real treat. The Marine Corps and his OAO will receive a fine 
gentleman.

Ralph came to the Naval Academy from a little coal mining town. Possessing an intense 
personal pride, he was a very conscientious student throughout his four years at USNA. 
He worked with the utmost sincerity so that he might realize his ambition to be com- 
missioned an officer in the Marine Corps. In addition to academics, Ralph devoted 
much time to athletics. The fall months always found him in football gear, first on the 
Plebe and then JV teams. During the winter, he played for the Sixth Company field- 
ball team out on the breezy tundra of Hospital Point. A likeable fellow with a wonder- 
ful sense of humor, Ralph was always happy if he could, in some way, make things a 
little easier for the next man. 

Fitz is another of Pottsville's sons who has contributed much to the Brigade. Known 
for his perseverance in any situation, Fitz consistently starred in academics while 
holding membership in the Aeronautical Engineering, German, and Newman Clubs. 
This sportsman ran the gauntlet from Plebe football to varsity and battalion lacrosse 
and company football. Fitz graduated from high school in his podunk, and spent a year 
in the Naval Reserve while attending Wyoming Seminary. Now he plans a career in 
one of the Navy Department's many activities.

As his many friends would tell you, Joe was a funloving, easy-going guy who was as 
much at home on the dance floor as he was on the football field. He was a great lover 
of sports and was always a participant in one way or another. During Plebe year he 
earned numerals in both football and baseball and, although he was one of the "extra 
fellows," he remained loyal to the baseball team for three varsity years. Joe's prize 
possession was his collection of records, which included semi-classical selections as 
well as "rock 'n' roll." Joe has many plans for the future, and is considering entering 
the Marine Corps upon graduation. His ready smile and straightforward manner will 
find happiness for him in whatever he may do.

Reception Committee. As far as social life was concerned, he was quite content with 
his pretty lass from Kingston. After graduation, Rut plans to enter the field of Naval

Patty hails from Philadelphia where he attended St. Joe's Prep and LaSalle College. 
One day Patty found himself inside Gate 3. His three companions, sports, whiskey, and 
women, were joined by a fourth, Navy Regs, and the five of them went hand-in-hand 
in conquering the rigors of Navy life in a happy and contented fashion. There were few 
who didn't know Patty, and truly he will be remembered as "one of the boys." Patty 
managed the football team for four years. There is no doubt that his hard work and 
spirit brought home many a Navy victory. Off the field, Patty's interest turned to his 
blonde OAO, who soon found that between football trips and cruise, these four years 
were pretty rough, even on a drag. 

Dave, one of Pottsville's finest contributions to the Naval Academy, was noted for 
the seriousness with which he tackled all problems. In sports Dave was outstanding on 
both varsity and intramural squads, participating in both Plebe soccer and gym as 
well as company football, soccer, and softball. A better than average student in the 
classroom, Dave still found time to be an active participant in the German Club, 
Aeronautical Engineering Club, Antiphonal Choir and the NACA. After prepping at 
Wyoming Seminary, Dave spent twenty-two months in the Naval Reserve before 
entering and anticipates a career in either the Navy or Marine Corps.

Fritz came to the Naval Academy directly from high school where he captained his 
varsity football squad. He continued his gridiron endeavors while here and lettered 
three years with the Blue and Gold varsity. During the off season, Fritz could be 
found either in the wrestling loft or on the lacrosse field. When weekends arrived, 
however, liberty received the first calling. Studies, except for an occasional scrape with 
the Bull and Dago Departments, were no great problem to him, and much of his spare 
time was accounted for in the rack. His ability to laugh at his close calls with the Exec- 
utive Department will long be remembered by all who knew Fritz.

Gary is one of the many Pennsylvanians in the Class of '59. Continuing his active high 
school life, he was constantly working or playing at something. A fixture in all company 
activities, he was one of the big guns on the company's basketball team, volley ball and 
cross country teams. Although a hard worker he always "pressed the coast button" on 
weekends to drag or watch a varsity sporting event. A summer cruise aboard a sub- 
marine convinced him to try for his dolphins upon graduation.

A rather quiet yet carefree guy, Skip entered USNA after a year at Wyoming Seminary. 
He always had a bit of mischief lurking in his mind. His evident athletic ability was 
surpassed only by his good-naturedness and his affinity for the female species. Not one 
to worry excessively over academics, he made the most of those short, short weekends. 
Skip's towering height proved invaluable on the volleyball court and he was known to 
swing a mean club on the golf links. Quantico-bound, he sure is to be a valuable asset to 
the Corps. 

Griff came straight to the Academy from high school where he rowed varsity crew for 
three years. His interest in this sport paid him with four very successful years in the 
Navy shells. Griff was a member of the "N" club and the Gun Club and is an ardent 
submariner. Always one to take things at their true value, he could be called on at 
anytime for a tough job. A devoted rock and roll fan, Griff always found time for music. 
His Irish temperament and ready grin made him a friend of all and a success in all he 
undertook.

"Say, are you really a Quaker?" Ed must have heard that question a thousand times. 
He was always ready, however, to defend his Pennsylvania Dutch background. Once 
here he chose the boxing ring as an outlet for his extra energy. When the winter months 
came, he was busy sweating to make the company 150-pound football team. He likes 
sailing, cold weather, a good pepe, sausage pot pie, letters from anyone, the Phillies 
and active sports. Ed was a constant source of information to all Plebe questions. He 
is interested in a bachelor Navy Air career upon graduation.

Johnny contributed greatly, both in athletic and academic achievements, to the Bri- 
gade. A three-year member of the varsity rifle team, he was at his best when the com- 
petition was the toughest, especially against Army. To his classmates who had trouble 
with the academic departments, John was always ready to extend a helping hand. His 
favorite pastime was tinkering with his radio monstrosity, just one of his many varied 
interests. John's chief claim to fame was keeping his OAO through four years of academic 
life. Johnny plans on entering the Civil Engineering Corps and will certainly be a credit 
to this branch of the Navy.

Bud came to the Academy via Drexel Institute of Technology. Athletically, he tried 
his hand in most of the intramural sports offered here at the Academy after finding 
Plebe football a little too rough. Not much of a slash, this boy spent his share of time 
studying, listening to music, and other extra sports such as giving the Plebes something 
to work on. Upon leaving the Academy, the Navy will most probably become a way of 
life. 

Joey continued to show his fine football finesse from his high school days to the 150 
pound team, playing three years as a regular squad member. One of the brighter 
members of our class, he spent most of his time in the pad yet he maintained a 3.45 
average. A great jazz fan, Joey often ran into trouble with his wives as they grimly 
covered their ears more than one study period. Destined for the Fleet, Joey hopes to 
start a career in submarines after a year in destroyers.

Chuck, a Navy Junior, had difficulty in deciding on a home town, but picked York, 
Pennsylvania. Born in San Diego, California, he has moved around quite a bit. Chuck 
came to the Naval Academy after graduating from William Penn Charter School in 
Philadelphia. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed country music. To better pursue 
these two interests, he joined the Log staff as a sports writer and became a disc 
jockey for Radio Station WRNV. Because of his likeable nature, Chuck leaves the 
Naval Academy with many friendships created during his four-year tenure.

Gordy came to Navy Tech from the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country with 
four loves — aviation, his OAO, sports cars, and a good party. Having no sweat with 
the academics, Gordy divided his time between the golf course, lacrosse field, and blue 
trampoline. A firm supporter of the Twenty-first Amendment, this lad didn't have 
much use for a few of the regulations. Gordy's warm, friendly personality and his sin- 
cerity will make him a welcome and valuable addition wherever he goes, as it did at 
USNA.

After a year at Wyoming Seminary, John entered Navy Tech and spent a good deal 
of his time playing varsity football in the fall, and to any and all things pertaining to 
aeronautics the rest of the year. Good-natured and very easy to get along with, John 
never had to worry about a lack of friends. His interest in others' problems made him 
welcome in any circle of conversation. With men like this, the Navy can be assured of 
a Well-kept outfit in the future. 

After high school, Don worked in the advertising field for two years before the call of 
the sea beckoned. Deciding on a Navy career, he applied for the Naval Academy and 
was sent to Bainbridge to prep for a year. While there he qualified as a radioman and 
became business and advertising manager of the yearbook. Here at the Academy, 
Don won his numerals in Plebe track and was manager of the varsity track team during 
his Third and Second Class years. He was also a member of the Lucky Bag staff.

Adjusting to Academy life was no problem for Tim, as he was gifted with a fine memory 
and sense of responsibility. Company sports were his afternoon activity and he was 
very successful on the soccer, softball and handball teams. He received what might be 
said "a good Plebe year" and it was many a Plebe that came to realize the responsibili- 
ties of his class through Tim's experienced hand. Academics were never a problem and 
he seemed to be able to combine academics and social activities and excel in both.

Frank entered the Academy through the Naval Reserve after attending Columbian

friends, while his athletic prowess made him a front runner on such sport squads as 
Plebe and batt football and soccer. His favorite pastimes, however, were weekends and 
writing letters to his female followers. Somehow he managed to have a girl or two wait- 
ing for him wherever he went. After graduation, Frank hopes to make a career in the 
Marine Corps. 

Equipped with a genial personality and natural athletic ability, Mick came to USNA 
from Columbian Prep. During Youngster year he realized that academics were of 
prime importance, yet he managed to win the Brigade light heavyweight boxing title. 
Well grounded in his Plebe knowledge, Mickey applied Halsey's battle cry of "hit 
hard, hit fast, hit often," not only in the ring but in other pursuits as well. After sur- 
viving a couple of low blows from the Skinny and Steam Departments, he gained as 
healthy an appreciation of the theoretical side of engineering as he had for the practical 
side as a construction worker, prior to entering USNA. Obviously, Mickey is well- 
rounded and ready for a promising career.

Reserve through which he obtained his appointment. When the air turned crisp at 
Navy, you could always see Jack on the football field. Along with this, he also did well 
in academics. If he wasn't talking sports, you could find him with his guitar. Upon 
graduation, Jack plans to enter the Marine aviation, where we all expect him to do 
an excellent job.

Much to the sorrow of Penn State's gymnastic coach, Wally came to us after spending 
a year with the "Nittany Lions." While at the Academy, W ally's talents were greatly 
appreciated as he graduates with a record of four years on the Academy gym team. In 
his spare time he could usually be found playing poker or bridge with the boys. He was 
never one to turn down a party and, when that rare occasion arose, he was always 
there. In the future, Wally hopes to strengthen the air arm of the Navy.

Known to everyone as Luke, he came to us from that well-known seat of learning in 
North Catasauqua. He is next to the youngest in a family of six brothers and eight 
sisters. His reason for coming to the Academy occurred one day while in Philly when he 
fell in with what he thought was his family and discovered it was actually the Brigade 
on the way to beat Army. He's been here ever since. While here Luke was everything 
from a varsity football quarterback to an expert in the sport of fieldball. He will be 
long remembered for that saying which should make him an honorary member of the 
Executive Department, "Hey, see if I'm on the E. D. list will you?" 

Jack carried over his high school athletic ability by playing on the Plebe basketball 
team and the battalion intramural teams. His great love was basketball and during 
his free moments he could always be seen "hooping a few" on Kelly Court. Although 
Jack was very quiet and easily run, he quickly gained the respect and admiration of 
his classmates for his leadership abilities and sharp appearance. His easy going manner 
made him many friends. Jack possessed real talent with the pen and in spare time, helped 
out the Trident art staff.

Pennsylvania, well-known for its fine athletes, produced no exception in him. He let- 
tered in football, basketball, and baseball at Allentown High School and was named to 
the All-State Basketball team in 1954. While here at Navy, John concentrated on bas- 
ketball and baseball, playing varsity ball in both for three years. He was captain of 
the basketball team during the 1958-59 season. John prided himself as a connoisseur 
of fine beers and blondes. His warm smile and friendly hello for everyone will stand him 
in good stead wherever he may go. Whatever he may do, he will always be a credit to 
the Academy and his class.

Malvern donated Bill to the Navy Tech collection, yet somehow managed to reclaim 
him most of his weekends. Despite his devotion to the theory of minimum effort, Bill 
maintained a Superintendent's List average. His afternoons were occupied with com- 
pany sports and an occasional bout with everyone's favorite; the "blue trampoline." 
Second Class summer held something of an appeal for Bill as he is bound for Navy Air. 
A sharp wit, along with a ready grin, kept us believing that Bill would surely find his 
friends anywhere after graduation.

Willy spent most of his life in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. Before entering the Academy, 
he studied the life and ways of college men in the ivy covered halls of Pennsylvania 
State University. Here at the Academy he proved himself a student of leisure, as he 
was not one to burn the midnight oil. The academic departments, nevertheless, gave 
him no trouble. Although he is not endowed with exceptional athletic ability, Willy 
did more than his share as a member of the company soccer, squash, handball and soft- 
ball teams. His easy-going personality and sense of humor made him well-liked by all.

Sports and dragging were Steve's prime targets as he shot through four years at Navy. 
He seemed to have the charm, aggressiveness, poise and precision to handle each task 
with ease. Active in football and fencing, he enjoyed all sports and had the natural 
ability to play each with equal ability. Academically, Steve didn't star, but didn't 
hang on the tree either. His theory was precise and accurate and his infrequent mis- 
takes were due to "slide rule errors." His sharp wit made conversations easy and his 
company enjoyable. Happy-go-lucky and free as the breeze, Steve studied and played 
hard.

Bill graduated from high school with high hopes of playing varsity football at the Naval 
Academy. Lacking the size, but not the spirit, for the Plebe team, he was active as a 
member of both the lightweight crew and football squads. Bill became well-known to 
Navy through his diversified interests among which were sailing, dragging, and stay- 
ing ahead of the system. His friendly manner identified him wherever he went. Ability 
and perseverance made him successful in his studies and highly qualified to follow his 
chosen field of Naval Aviation.

Mac came to us from the mountains of western Pennsylvania after a year's hangover at 
Bullis Prep. A hair-triggered smile and a retreating hairline were but a few of the more 
obvious features about this boy. Second Class year found him embracing books a little 
more frequently than was necessary during his first two years at Usnay, although he 
never really had any troubles. With all the added variables of academics, however, his 
rack time remained constant. A veritable Eddie Duchin, he was coaxed to tickle the 
ivories whenever the proximity of a keyboard permitted. Fred's enthusiasm and perse- 
verance provide him with the basic ingredients of assured success. 

On the day John landed at the Academy he was branded with the name of "Phila- 
delphia Hood." It was then that he really decided to show how a local "hood" could 
make good. While at the Academy, he added life to almost any occasion, whether it 
was just a leisurely conversation or a fast game of soccer. His ability to inject humor 
into any sort of an otherwise depressing situation made him quite an asset to any or- 
ganization. His favorite pastime, soccer, carried him to an "N" early in his Naval 
Academy career. John was always a good man to be with after the football games in 
Baltimore, since he always had a few good phone numbers and never had any trouble 
finding a spot to have a really good time. Despite academic troubles, John always 
managed to follow his favorite occupation of enjoying life.

for a beer and has been a member of the Marine Corps ever since. During his four years 
TAD at the Naval Academy, he was a stalwart on the varsity cross country and track 
teams, pulling in many miles and victories for Navy. His love of classical music was 
inherited from Schroeder of "Peanuts" fame. He was a strong advocate of replacing 
Math and Skinny with more Bull. Tom's literary ability was soon discovered and he 
spent many long hours "doctoring" our term papers and themes. "Anything above

Out of the coal mines came our boy Jace to USNA. Jace's nickname was derived from 
Jason of Golden Fleece fame. Some say his interest was in the gold, and his closest 
friends agree. His good humor has made many friends throughout the Brigade, al- 
though his two best friends were his alarm clock and the midnight oil which he used 
in battling the academic departments. He still found time to manage varsity lacrosse 
and play battalion football and boxing. His aggressiveness and good humor should 
make his naval career a fine one. 

Pat arrived in Crabtown from the big city, convinced that Philadelphia was still the 
capital of the United States. When he came here he probably knew less about the 
Academy than most of his classmates, but soon his spirit and genuine love of the Navy 
set an example for those around him to follow. He was always ready with a smile or a 
helping hand and could be counted on for a bull session on any subject. The Drum and 
Bugle Corps and the Concert Band provided an outlet for his musical abilities. Pat's 
sincerity will always be his most valuable asset and he will be an example to follow in 
whatever service he chooses.

Leo came to Navy via Scranton Central and Wyoming Seminary Prep School. 
After a year of Plebe gymnastics, he turned to company sports and was an aggressive

especially since academics came easy to him. Always joking and ready "to have a

"Duck" came to the Academy from Central Bucks High School in Doylestown where 
four years of athletics enabled him to continue as a member of the Plebe football and 
track teams. Academically, he was the master of the Bull Department and spent much 
of his time gouging his classmates in this subject. Known as one of the few mids who 
did not sweat Second Class year, he will be remembered for his ability to apply him- 
self to most any situation. His serious attitude towards the Navy will aid him greatly 
in his career. 

Phil undoubtedly holds the record for the most hours spent asleep. If he was not at 
battalion football practice, there was only one other place he would be. Perhaps that 
was why Phil was always so easy to get along with. He will be remembered for his 
painless starvation diets, painless except for the time he passed out in formation after 
not having eaten for several days. Phil was a stellar guard on the Third Battalion foot- 
ball team and, although he never won a varsity letter, he will always remember the 
black "N" which was awarded to him. Academics came easily to Phil and he made 
many friends with his willingness to help others.

always available to help out a friend, except on weekends which he held sacred. He 
rarely spent them in the enclosures of Mother Bancroft and rarely did he concentrate 
on anything else so deeply. At graduation, Scotty plans on Marine life at Quantico.

upon graduation. 

Trading the Quaker Colors of the University of Pennsylvania for Navy's Blue and

he was in Paradise with his rack, James Dean records and plenty of time for writing

Gibby entered the Naval Academy with only one thought in mind, to become a Naval

departments with his high marks. With plenty of time for extracurricular activities, 
Gibby played golf constantly and was rewarded with the position of captain when 
only a Second Classman. He found time to support company athletics in cross country 
and steeplechase. All his activities, however, pointed toward the Navy goal, and both 
he and the Navy should find rewards when he enters the Fleet. 

Steve was a mainstay on the golf team. Sports did not detract from his studies, however, 
as he graduates with honors. He attended Cornell University for one year where he 
majored in chemical engineering. At Navy, Steve continued his high scholastic ways 
by making the Superintendent's List annually. Most of his spare time was spent with 
Plebe crew and later the Log advertising staff and the Lucky Bag staff. If his eyes 
remain good, Steve will one day be seen standing on the bridge of his submarine.

Prepping at Pottsville High and Wyoming Seminary, he has since proved his worth as 
a mainstay on the varsity baseball and company soccer teams. He never found aca-

Fred was well set for the rigors of Plebe year after two years at New York Military 
Academy, where he was an outstanding student and varsity football player. He did 
very well at USNA where he maintained a position on the Superintendent's List from 
the start. He was never one to sweat the system and always seemed to give a maximum 
of output with a minimum of input. Fred didn't drag as often as he wanted to but when 
he did, it was with the best. He is very enthusiastic about his career in the Naval 
Service and will surely be a great asset to it.

Harry found the rigid life of a midshipman to his liking after prepping at Severn School 
for a year. A hard worker, he mixed studies, athletics and social life equally. Being a 
member of the Fourth Class Detail during Second Class summer and playing ball were 
the highlights of Harry's Academy days. He ran his wives more than the Plebes, but 
his humor could be counted on during the "dark ages." One could always recognize 
Harry by his cigar, his winning smile, and the thinning of his hair. The honor and 
ideals of the Service will always be foremost in his actions. 

Bob came to the Naval Academy from the small town of Waynesburg. Since the first 
day of Plebe summer, he showed enthusiasm in everything he did. Much of his spare 
time was spent working out in the gym, helping on the Reception Committee, drag- 
ging or playing handball. In all of his activities, he was characterized by his qualities 
as a hard worker and hard player. His sincerity, however, was accompanied by a pleas- 
ant personality and a sharp sense of humor. Bob attempted to achieve perfection in all 
that he did, a quality which will aid him in his chosen career of Naval Aviation.

ing. He is an engineer first, last and always. It was a common belief among his class- 
mates that his interest and excellent mind will lead him to a career in the field of Naval 
research. A tough man on Plebes, he believed that there was no excuse for poor work. 
Bob's activities included four years of boxing competition, two years on the batt ten- 
nis team, Plebe crew and three years service in WRNV. His capabilities lead one to 
believe that he will be a success in whatever endeavor he undertakes.

standing in the class, coupled with four years of Brigade boxing and various class and 
Brigade activities, speak well of his abilities. By his example, he showed to all the 
typical ideal classmate. First Class year saw Shorty in the number one spot as Brigade

he will go far in the Fleet.

locker in the sixth wing, you would have known Mack was behind it. After a short 
season with the 150 pound crew team, he shifted from oars and firearms to the epee and 
developed a skill that brought him national fame. His fencing ability knows no bounds, 
and hopes for an Olympic berth could easily be realized. Mack's sailing ability and love 
of the sea should make him a capable officer in the "Silent Service." 

After a year's tour of duty as a "junior birdman" at Penn State, Ray left the ROTC 
chapter there and brought to the Academy his proficiency with the "guess stick" and 
a facility for solving crossword puzzles. Plebe year can be summed up for him with an 
alarm clock, a Bull book, and a lighted shower. Natural talent, combined with a strong 
competitive spirit, enabled Ray to make the all-Brigade steeplechase team. His most 
enjoyable form of relaxation was running Youngsters, which began Plebe year. Alert- 
ness, a sense of humor and a fine character, guarantee Ray a successful service career.

George, known to everyone as Skip, came to the Naval Academy after a year at Lehigh. 
He brought along a healthy appetite and a weekly food supply. He lettered three 
years in soccer and participated in many other sports. Despite his athletic activities, 
he continued to be on the Superintendent's List. Rounding out his extracurricular 
activities, Skip was a three year member of the Glee Club and was on the debating 
team. Coming from a small town, he is a big hearted guy with a smile for everyone.

Bob came to Navy from Newport, the land of the Jazz Festival, via Columbian Prep. 
Shocked at not finding the Ivy League surroundings he anticipated, he went on to 
make Plebe year as enjoyable as possible with memories of beach parties, festivals 
and life on Cape Cod. Not wanting to rise above his company mates by collecting 
stars, he devoted his star-making time to making himself a great morale booster. De- 
spite being quite busy keeping one step ahead of the Executive Department, he ex- 
celled in his favorite sport of basketball. His philosophy, "I think I'll stay six forever 
and ever." Whether he's stationed at Newport or not, his tremendous capabilities 
will make him an outstanding officer.

Bob found time to take up nearly every sport with the exception of shot putting, 
while attending Navy. Track, however, remained his first love. Before entering the 
Academy he spent a year with the gay party at Brown University. Besides athletics, 
he managed to find time to star in academics and to actively participate in the Photo 
Club. After graduation, Bob hopes to go Navy Line and intends to spend the next 
thirty years of his life devoted to the Navy and the Submarine Service.

Charlie, always a standout with the fairer sex, was never one to pass by any chances 
for liberty or dragging. His experiences along these lines were a source of amusement 
to his classmates. A four year star man, he had no trouble finishing in the top ten per 
cent of his class. He had other interests than books, however, taking an active part in 
radio station WRNV and intramural sports. Charlie will reach any goal he sets for 
himself. He plans to make a career in the Silent Service. 

Charlie came to the Academy after a year of engineering at Brown University. The 
shock of Plebe year didn't affect him much. He breezed through Youngster year, 
spending a lot of time playing golf and dragging. Academics never bothered him during 
his tour here. It must be noted that he never let his studies interfere with his education. 
He enjoyed Second Class summer more than Youngster or First Class cruise, especially 
duty at Pensacola. It seems liberty agreed with him. His strong point was his hearty 
sense of humor, a characteristic which made everyone's tour at the Academy a little 
better.

Before coming to the Academy, Jim spent a year at the University of Rhode Island 
after a summer of swinging a pick for the Rhode Island Highway Department. He 
proved himself to be one of the finest runners in the company, as he never failed to 
bring in a good number of points, whether running steeplechase, cross country or soc- 
cer. Jim's talents were not, however, confined to the sports world, as he also sang in 
the Catholic Choir and played an impromptu coronet.

Woodley was a sport from the word "go." He always had a grin for everybody, and a 
hearty "hang in there." He spent his time playing, dreaming of his girl, or beating the 
desk with drumsticks, studying only when he saw no way out. He believed in having a 
good time today and worrying about tomorrow, tomorrow. Woodley knew how to 
handle himself in any situation. Any Plebe who came to see him found that out right 
away. He found the going a little rough at first but gathered momentum as time went 
by and finished with what he came to Navy to get — a commission in the Navy.

Bob, a Navy Junior, has lived in many parts of the U.S. as well as abroad. At present, 
his home address is in Providence. He was active at the Academy in Plebe and batt 
lacrosse and his talents were also made available to the Ring Committee. It was a 
source of much wonder whether Bob's good nature would last longer than his hair. 
From the last census of the population of his scalp, it looks as if the good nature is 
winning by a hair. 

Hank came from our smallest state where he attended Rhode Island University for 
two years before entering the Academy. He brought with him a good word for everyone 
and an overpowering urge to always do a complete job. Youngster year "Pop" broke 
his leg playing soccer but kept his interest in athletics. He was rarely bothered by 
academics and spent his spare time designing his future home or talking about Navy 
Air. His father's beach camp in Maine was the scene of several happy summer gather- 
ings of his classmates. His Italian humor will long be remembered.

Although Fred hails from Newport, he is one of the few from there who is not a Navy 
Junior. A. J's connection with the Navy way of life was demonstrated by his great love 
for the sea. In academics he did very well with the only one exception being Dago. On 
weekends and leave periods, Fred's spare time was spent in search of beer mugs to add 
to his ever-growing collection. To those who know him well, he was a most sincere and 
devoted friend, fully cognizant of his duty to God and his country.

In Sully the smallest State in the Union produced the biggest voice in the Naval Acad- 
emy. Well-known throughout the Brigade for his always-firm stand, Dave left no doubt 
as to the strength of his convictions. Possessing as well a reputation for getting things 
done, he was elected Editor-in-Chief of the '59 Lucky Bag. A good student and an 
amiable companion, Dave's characteristic courage and unusual talent for organization 
will make him an outstanding addition to the Fleet.

Trux entered the Academy with all the social graces and savoir faire that four years at 
St. Georges School in Newport could give him. His two main interests were skin-diving 
and sailing. At USNA, his time cut considerably by academics and dragging, he man- 
aged to continue only the sailing and became a member of the Plebe and later the var- 
sity dinghy team. Always on the vocal side, Trux joined the choir Plebe year and sang 
happily through all four years. After graduation, he plans to go Navy Line and sub- 
marines. He has the sincerity and desire to go far and this, coupled with his native in- 
telligence, will make him a more than capable officer. 

Lou is a very personable fellow with a ready smile and a ready hand if someone needs 
an untimely watch stood or an extra dollar for the big weekend. Everyone who knows 
him finds himself saying, "I have found a friend." Lou's extracurricular activities 
consisted of holding down a position in the Catholic Choir and singing in the Musical 
Club shows. His sole hobby is attending parties and no party really gets into gear 
until he gets there. His readiness to bear a hand and give a cheery remark has won 
many friends for this future aviator. We all wish him the best of luck in the years to 
come.

Allen ton claims Charlie as its representative in the Class of 1959. After leaving prep 
school, he came to Annapolis where he soon made himself at home. His all-around ath- 
letic ability placed him on many of Navy's sports rosters, while his likeable personality 
placed him as a number one man with his friends. In his spare time he dazzled his drags 
with the wonders of Annapolis. Chuck's ability to get a job done and his determination 
to see that it is done right will be an asset to him when he joins the United States 
Marine Corps.

After spending a year as a "Rat" at Clemson College in his home state, Walt was better 
able to accept the hardships of Plebe year. Arriving at the Naval Academy with a 
toothbrush and set of golf clubs, he began to accept the tasks of becoming a Naval 
officer with the form of a true golfer. If he could not be found at meetings of the Russian 
Club, Political Economy Club, or tending his duties in the Regimental library, more 
than likely he would be diligently preparing for the next day's Steam p-work. His easy 
going and straightforward manner make him a desirable member of any group. He will 
certainly be an asset to the Fleet.

Before entering the Academy, Larry attended Georgia Institute of Technology. He 
worked hard at every task he undertook. In his spare time he enjoyed listening to 
music, playing a game of pool, or reading a Pogo book. He was very active on the 
Reception Committee and as company representative for the Log and Splinter during 
Youngster year. For two years he was a member of the Third Battalion wrestling team 
which won the Brigade Championship in 1956. This conscientious worker will be a 
proud addition to the U.S. Navy.

Dwight proved himself to possess the greatest of potential as an officer. This bright 
outlook for his future can easily be made after seeing the results of his efforts in the 
Academy. Most active in the sport of fencing, he brought in many an ever-needed 
point for his team, whether it be Plebe, battalion, or varsity. Besides his fencing skill 
with the sabre, he also did unusually well in the annual company pistol competition. 
Dwight's OAO had the disadvantage of living 500 miles away, but his liberty time was 
usually profitably spent with his numerous church activities. A few minutes were al- 
ways found for the Bible, regardless of how hurried and busy the day. 

Having stood high in academics before coming to USNA, Dick never let his standards 
drop. Through his four years at the Academy he stayed in the top third of his class. 
Naval Aviation first and then post graduate school sound good to this midshipman. 
Like many of us, Dick had never seen lacrosse before coming to Navy, but it didn't 
take him long to decide which his sport was. He soon became a well-known figure on the 
intramural and varsity lacrosse fields. In the off-season he kept in shape by competing, 
at the company level, in fieldball. In what other spare time he could muster Dick spent 
it boating, fishing, playing golf, and playing bridge.

Though born in Jacksonville, Florida, and named after Captain James Lawrence, 
Larry did not become interested in USNA until midway through his first year at Clem- 
son College. Leaving Clemson after one year, he entered USNA and became a strictly 
Navy Air man for the whole stay. He went out for coxswain in Plebe crew and later 
retired to company volleyball in sports. His major interests included the College Ave. 
Baptist Church, N.A.C.A., and a girl back home. Now his main goals are getting his 
Navy wings and command of his own ship.

Ron came to the Academy after graduating from Columbia High School. Being a Navy 
junior and a member of the Naval Air Reserve, he was quite familiar with the Navy 
before he decided to make it a full time job. He spent most of his spare time sailing one 
of the Academy's twelve yawls and many weekends out on the Bay racing midshipmen 
and civilian yachtsmen. He also found time to play around with the hi-fi set and to 
take anything available apart. Ron plans to make submarines his major interest after 
putting in some time in the surface Navy.

With a winning smile and a ready laugh, Dick descended on the Naval Academy. 
In his four years here he made many friends who will always remember him for his 
unfailing good humor. A true sailor, he could be seen heading for Dewey Basin and the 
dinghies each afternoon, with the exception of weekends when he preferred the company 
of the fairer sex. His deep southern accent and devotion to his native state was the 
subject of a great deal of good-natured kidding. Dick plans to enter Naval Aviation 
upon graduation.

Stan, or "Big S," as he was known to his company mates, entered the Naval Academy 
one June day of '55 and immediately developed a first love, his graduation on a 
similar June day in '59. A southern gentleman, with accent of course, he claims the 
Palmetto State. It was his firm belief that matching his wits with a fair damsel on the 
weekend was an equal contribution to his Naval training. He could be found almost 
any afternoon going through a routine on the parallel bars. He plans to make either 
the Navy or the Marine Corps his career and will be a welcome addition to whichever 
becomes his final choice.

J 



Al was a gypsy at heart. He spent the least time possible in his own room. The rest of 
the company, especially the Plebes, got to know him better than his roommate for he 
was always on the prowl for a lively conversation or a bite to eat. About the middle of 
Second Class year he received the nickname, "Alsy, the wandering chow hound." His 
sports were battalion football and company basketball. He excelled in the former 
while the latter performed the useful function of keeping him out of the rack. In spite 
of his grand propensity for rest and refreshment, he could be relied upon to lend a 
helping hand at all times. His willingness to help and his good-naturedness were admired 
by his associates at Annapolis. It is expected that these same qualities will carry him 
to a satisfying and successful career in the Navy.

After a one year fling at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Jim brought 
himself from out West to the shores of the Severn. A member of the Drum and Bugle 
Corps, Jim enjoyed playing for the football games, but enjoyed most of all the parties 
that followed them. An avid hunter and fisherman before he entered the Academy, 
he missed his favorite pastimes while working for Uncle Sam. Never one to sweat 
studies, he became an ardent bridge fan and a devout disciple of much sleep during 
his three upperclass years. After graduation, Jim is looking forward to a crack at Navy 
Air.

When Dick reported to the Academy, his big smile, which never left his face, helped 
to make him one of the Brigade's worthiest elements. As a Plebe he distinguished 
himself on the soccer and baseball fields. Still retaining better than average grades, 
Dick continually sparked the varsity soccer team. To keep busy, he added to his oc- 
cupations varsity baseball and boxing while participating actively in the Newman, 
German and Model Clubs. Dick hopes to become a flyer in the Marine Corps but 
wherever he goes he will always be "Grade A."

After a year at Tennessee Tech, Bob joined the Army and spent two years as a para-

of his academics with but one near mishap, first year French. In the field of athletics, 
he excelled in company sports and battalion football, where he earned many points for 
his company. Bob will always be remembered and respected for his leadership quali-

It seems as though Andy has been traveling all his life from the many places he has 
seen and lived in. From Tennessee to Austria and back again, he claims Milan, Ten- 
nessee as his home. Although he spent the best part of Plebe year in the hospital and 
again the same situation Second Class year, he managed to keep up his grades and forti- 
tude to stay on as a proud member of the Class of '59. After a year at Memphis State, 
Andy ventured forth to USNA to gain a reputation as one of the greatest draggers in 
the place. His personality and spark should go a long way in making a successful 
career in the Navy. 

Tom, a staunch supporter of the South and southern women, came here with the in- 
tention of pursuing a sport more familiar to him, but quickly found a place on the crew 
team. In this role he played an important part for the next four years. One of the big 
men in his company, he had trouble deciding whether to try squeezing into a jet cock- 
pit or bumping around in a submarine. In either field his easy adaptability will insure 
his continued success. Tom's average was always good, although he did not spend all 
his time studying. His easy going personality will make him a capable officer in what- 
ever he does.

Bob's outstanding high school days were to be surpassed only by the impressive record 
he made in his four years at USNA. In spite of the rigors of Plebe year, he managed to 
earn his stars in academics and his numerals in fencing. His academic endeavors did 
not end with his own achievements, for he could often be found aiding a not-so-savvy 
classmate. An excellent speaker and debater in high school, Bob's interests were nat- 
urally drawn to the Forensic Society where he left a lasting impression by ably repre- 
senting Navy at various intercollegiate debates and serving as an officer in that Society. 
Beyond studies and debate, he found time for active participation in the Russian and 
Foreign Relations Clubs. Judging from his invaluable contributions to the Brigade, 
Bob should be a great asset to the service.

Hugh, noted throughout the company for his academic ability, demonstrated that he 
will be an asset to the Navy for many years to come. When not studying or catching 
up on current events, he could usually be found exercising his duties as varsity track 
manager. Among Hugh's main enjoyments were tennis, swimming and hi-fidelity 
music. A graduate of West High School in Knoxville, Hugh, upon completion of his 
tour at the Naval Academy, intends to enter submarine school as soon as possible.

"Can ah borrow falve dollars?" This question was the reason Frank somehow never 
managed to fill his wallet as well as his stomach. His love for a good meal may well 
have been justified as necessary to provide the energy which he burned up on the drums 
at many jam sessions. Not only his rhythms but also his rollicking laughter served to 
raise the spirits of those who knew him. Never a real athlete, Frank did his bit for Navy, 
either by riding the waves of the Severn in a dinghy or engaging in a strenuous work- 
out on the blue trampoline. Frank will forever be remembered for his well-known 
philosophy on life — "to heck with studying, I'm going to read science fiction." 

Jase came to us after a year at the University of Wisconsin. Plebe year he looked at 
his books and promptly put them aside, to ride through four very successful academic 
years on his fine brain. Despite the fact that Bob had never seen a large body of water 
before he came to the Academy, he quickly adapted himself to sailing and became a 
stalwart of the Second Batt yawl crew. Besides sailing and Aviation Engineering 
Club activities, he found time to keep his international collection of lovely ladies 
happy. His clever wit, teamed with a keen understanding of academics, allowed him 
to spend a large part of his free time helping his less fortunate classmates. Bob plans 
a career in Naval Aviation, and every indication points to a good one.

Straight from West High School came Larry, "damn Yankee" by birth, but a tried

associated with him these past four years, he proved himself to be a true friend in- 
deed, ready, willing and able to help those of us not as gifted as he. As a member of the 
Plebe squash team, the Reception Committee and the Russian Club, he exhibited not 
only a great capacity for academics, but a keen sense of appreciation for athletics and 
the more social phases of his life as a midshipman. Fortunate indeed will be the CO

word he said. Not one for academics, he avoided them well and starred in PT and pa- 
rades. Plebe wrestling and varsity gymnastics weren't enough, so he was a regular on 
the Flying Squadron and dragged every weekend. Although readily avoided by Plebes, 
his ability to lead and to understand people will never be lacking.

After a year at Rice Institute, Bill decided to give up his aspirations to become a law-

of knowledge on professional subjects, he was quick to anger at the mention of math. 
Although Bill never participated in varsity sports, he had the singular distinction of 
being the only man ever to swim against Army in full uniform. He was an accomplished 
musician, and quite often one would find him passing the hours away strumming on a

Red, a Navy Junior, was not completely ignorant of what was going on here at the 
Academy when he reported in June of 1955. Although he came directly from high 
school he had a lot of experience in the sports field, having made the Ail-American team 
in high school basketball. Red's performances here at the Academy have proven his 
ability. He lettered three years in both basketball and tennis. Academics were no 
great problem to him mainly because he studies right up to the bell. If his eyes hold up 
under his constant slashing, Red hopes to go Navy Air.

Rice Institute's loss was the Naval Academy's gain when Stan left his pre-law studies 
and good times in Houston to come from the NROTC Unit on a competitive appoint- 
ment to the Academy. At the Academy, Stan was a mainstay of the varsity golf team 
and a member of Navy's top-notch debate team. His spare time was well taken up 
with the Glee Club, Chapel Choir, and the Russian Club. Amidst all this, he was con- 
sistently on the Superintendent's List and found time for his hobbies of golf and read- 
ing. With Stan's drive and ability, he will certainly be as big a success in his Naval

Dave rustled cattle for a year at Southwest Texas State prior to coming to the banks of

his mystified classmates. Blessed with a fine voice, he was active in the Glee Club. His 
athletic abilities were devoted to gymnastics, field ball and basketball for the Tenth

hi-fi set. His chosen service is the "black shoe" Navy. A man who sets high standards 
for himself, Dave will be a success in any field of endeavor. 

Ed loved to read a good book when he had a few free moments at Canoe U and one 
could usually find him with a book in his hands about subs or World War II battles. 
He liked to play bridge with a few friends and was very good at it. His biggest dislike 
was academics, especially the sciences and math. Ed was a wrestler Plebe year and the 
following years he played on intramural sports squads such as wrestling, bowling, and 
fencing. He had a pretty good eye for girls but had to fight an uphill battle with aca- 
demics. All of us who had the privilege of knowing him wish him the best of luck at 
his life long ambition, "take her down."

pad, he might well have been found fencing, playing squash, handball, or softball. He 
also took up photography, getting many shots of general interest. His background as 
an Army Brat, with conglomerated spit and polish, made Jim a good prospect for the

"That minister of ministers, Imagination, gathers up the undiscovered universe like

have been coupled together here in the form of the 1959 Lucky Bag. Bill was the 
art editor of the Lucky Bag, as well as a member of the Trident art staff and a 
co-artist of "Ploob." To augment the art field he has excellent potential in engineering 
work. With the abilities he possesses, Bill's highest ambition of aircraft design may 
very well be achieved. There must also be a fine wife and family to top off his desire 
for a successful career. On any road that he may travel, his broad Texas smile will al-

another strong point but he had to work a little harder for the Bull profs. A rope

Dan, another tall silent Texan, had a winding path that led him through the Lone 
Star State and finally stopped for four years on the shores of the Severn. Never one to 
strain himself when it was not necessary, he led the radiator squad for four years but 
did find time to put his tall frame to good use in company volleyball and basketball. 
He seldom lacked female companionship. Dan will take to Navy Air as a career and 
with each pass against an enemy he'll probably be remembering the Alamo!

Bud is a native of the Lone Star State and came to Navy Tech after spending a year at 
Rice Institute. Known primarily for his exploits on the varsity football field, he counted 
membership on the all-Brigade field ball team for three years also one of his prime 
achievements. After the football field, the "blue trampoline" was his favorite area. 
Bud has a compulsion for guns, hunting, and traveling. He plans to combine the three 
into one by going Navy Air. If his past performance continues, he's bound to fly high 
and far whatever his service may be. 

A true citizen of the Lone Star State, Don's many and varied experiences prior to, and 
after, entering the Academy gave him a collection of all tales which provided welcome 
entertainment at any time. His friendly personality won him a wealth of companions 
throughout the Brigade. Enthusiastic about everything he did, Don added much to 
the design of the class crest as a member of the Ring Committee. In athletics, Don de- 
voted his talent to rowing with the varsity 150 pound crew team. A "tin can sailor" 
since Youngster cruise, he is looking forward to a long and successful Naval career.

Joe came north with hopes of trying his hand at Navy's brand of football after a very 
successful season at Lamar Tech. A series of injuries, however, during Plebe year 
terminated his active participation on the gridiron. A true Texan in every sense of the 
word, Joe had the reputation of being one of the biggest men in the Brigade. Plebe 
year didn't pose much of a problem to him but the Dago Department kept him on his 
toes. He is looking forward to Navy Line for his career but his big ambition is to teach 
school and coach football after he retires. Whatever he does, Joe will do it well.

Harry came to the Academy from the Naval Reserve, bringing an indefatigable energy 
and a strong sense of humor to make "Mother Bancroft" more enjoyable for all. He 
was a source of strength to the company sports squads, and excelled wherever skill 
and exactness were required, whether in athletics or academics. The jazz of Brubeck 
and "Satchmo" provided his source of relaxation at the Academy, and he claimed hunt- 
ing and fishing the more enjoyable pursuits of life while home. Looking forward to a 
long career in submarines, Harry should find his flexible talent bringing him a success- 
ful tour.

Jerry came riding out of the wild and wooly West four years ago on his faithful four- 
legged animal, six-guns at his side. Despite his constant crusade he was never able to 
convert to the eastern way of life. After two years of electrical engineering at Utah 
State, he gave up the wayward life of an Air Force ROTC student to seek a career in 
the Navy. "Lovey" has the honor of being the first mid from his podunk. His academic 
achievements, athletic pursuits, and Blue and Gold spirit of competition, could be 
felt by those around him. Jerry will make a fine officer and gentleman in the long and 
glorious career that lies ahead of him. 



Don spent the best year of his life (to hear him tell it) at the University of Utah. Having 
learned to swim in the Great Salt Lake, he was a natural for the first Plebe swimming 
Sub-Squad. He eagerly put his long legs to use on the company steeplechase and cross 
country teams until he got his Second Class stripes and forced his way onto the 
battalion bowling team. The members of the Ninth Company have said Don played 
good accordian music and his wives do agree that he does play loud. In any event, it will 
always be remembered that he had a ready smile, hard shake, and ten per cent loan 
business.

Rick came to the Academy with a varied background, having attended St. Bonaventure 
University for a year and then brushing up for the entrance exams at Bullis Prep. De- 
spite his background, Rick never quite made the Superintendent's List, but he was never 
one to lose sleep over the matter. He was an active sportsman, well-known for his long 
ball hitting on the softball team. On a rainy day he was always a willing extra in a card 
game. Rick's ability to take life easy, while getting the job done, will continue to bring 
him satisfaction while serving for his first love, the Marine Corps.

His conscientious attitude and effort in gaining his commission was truly one of his most

team gives evidence of the teamwork and cooperation he will carry over upon reporting 
for duty in the Fleet.

Fred is one of those kind of guys that everyone likes to meet. He always has a smile and 
greeting for everyone. Not only does he hunt and fish, while at home, but he also 
brought his athletic ability here to USNA. Fred did not excel in just one sport, but 
rather he was a good man in almost any, as was shown by his participation in many 
company and battalion sports. Probably his favorite was football in which he played 
three years on the Fourth Battalion team. Fred's greatest ambition is to come back to 
the Naval Academy as a Captain in the Marine Corps to help the Executive Depart- 
ment do their job.

A true believer in sectionalism and a Bull cut besides, Johnny could usually be found 
reading "Vermont Life" or listening to hi-fi classics. Because he was a perpetual sack 
rat, he can claim few accomplishments outside of bringing in a few points for his com- 
pany cross country squad. He enjoyed quite a bit of carry-on during Plebe year for 
those victories. Johnny's Judo Club tactics were used to perfection on those drags of 
his who could endure it. His strong character might well portend a great future for 
him.

Larry came to the Academy after a year of preparing at Bullis in Silver Springs, Mary-

You just couldn't feel blue with Larry around. He was a great sports fan and loved to 
participate in them all, which he usually did in able fashion. As a Plebe, he rowed crew 
and played soccer. He made the varsity soccer team as a Youngster and the same year 
he was in the middleweight boxing finals. In Larry, the service has gained a fine officer 
who should really go places.

Abe, or Gordy as he was known by his friends, was generally one of the quiet guys in

Braves or during a Navy football game. As a matter of fact, Abe was interested in al- 
most any sport and was also a versatile athlete. He prided himself on playing on diff- 
erent company or battalion sports squads each year. When Saturday afternoon rolled 
around, though, he could be found each week with a different girl. Abe hopes to become 
another able member of the mightiest Fleet in the world.

Thode is another Rebel who came to USNA after a year of studying and partying at 
Bullis Prep. Although he had a tough time adjusting to the ways of Plebe year, his big 
trouble came when he found out leaves at will weren't included in the curriculum at 
USNA. Thode solved this problem Youngster year, for he was never one to turn down 
an offer to tip a few with the boys while on leave. He never made a varsity team but 
was still an outstanding athlete, especially in softball and football. Thode looks forward 
to June of '59 so he can begin his flying career in the Navy.

Ray came to us via Bullis Prep. After rowing in the National High School Crew Cham- 
pionship, he decided crew was the sport for him at Canoe U. His easy going and soft 
spoken charm was enjoyed by all his friends in Bancroft Hall. Ray was always a soft 
touch for a good book or an interesting bull session and because of this he was always a 
good listener and friend to all. His quiet manner, however, never hurt his dragging as he 
was often known to be seen with a queen on any given weekend.

Being born a Navy Junior meant the possession of a wander lust. Mike entered USNA 
with the Class of '58, but, finding that academics disagreed with him, he wandered out 
again. A short tour as a "civvie" ended with a debut in the Class of '59. A versatile 
athlete, he played Plebe tennis and was on the varsity gym team. Finding academics 
vulnerable if one looked hard enough, he proceeded to plow through with a pretty fair 
average. Too suave for a swab, he intends to trade the Navy blue for wings and a set of 
green.

Bob's avid thirst for flying was acquired years before he entered the Academy when he 
traveled from the Choate Prep School in Conia to his home in Norfolk. Though usually 
found on the tennis courts in his spare time, Copey devoted many afternoons to 150 
pound football practice and tending the goal for the Plebe lacrosse team. Rarely was 
there a dull moment when Bob was around, both in the Ninth Company and through- 
out the Brigade. Any branch of service will surely benefit by an individual with so many 
varied interests and abilities.

Art came to the Academy as a Navy Junior. After attending the Universities of San

Chess and Radio Clubs, while representing the company in intramural sports. Destined 
for Navy Line, he looks back on his years as some of the best but hopes for as successful 
a career as his Navy Line father.

Art can claim just about any state as his own and parts of Europe too. A true southern

five years at Farragut Academy and a year at North Carolina State before giving up 
his collegiate outfit and donning the Navy blue. When he wasn't on the soccer field, 
you could find him in his room reading Westerns, as academics never gave him much 
trouble. Art plans to spend his future studying the intricacies of missiles.

All of us who knew Mickey have a soft spot in our hearts for this warm and likable 
fellow. Whenever the chips were down, he was always around with a word of encourage- 
ment' and a willing hand. Everyone who knew him realized his earnest love for the sea 
and the Navy. Mickey worked hard at Navy, fighting for the company teams and for 
that extra tenth of a point in academics. His professional attitude was shown by study- 
ing a submarine correspondence course along with the hardships of Second Class year. 
With this attitude and energy, Mickey will see the Navy in any calling. 

Jim was well prepared to enter the Naval Academy after spending a year at Duke Uni- 
versity and then one at Columbian Prep. Storm clouds hovered over that familiar 
building next to the Tripolitan Monument for two years though, before he found clear 
sailing. He was never able to find time to participate in varsity athletics, but he was a 
mainstay in company sports. Getting a date was never a problem for Jim. With his 
southern accent and casual manner, how could he miss? Looks as if the Navy will get 
another fine officer after graduation.

After a year at Duke University, Tom came directly to USNA. Tennis dominated his 
athletic interests, and he could often be found on the varsity courts during the fall and 
spring both playing and managing. Tom's fame at being able to get the right answers 
soon earned him the title of "consultant," and the company password soon became, 
"just ask Tex, he knows how." After terrifying the Plebes with numerous submarine 
questions for the past two years, we will be sure to see him as one of the first to win 
his dolphins.

Husky, the "Virginia Plowboy," reluctantly left his hot-rod at home in Norfolk when

adventures during our cruises enlivened many a dull study hour. After graduation 
and a sixty-day tour, Husky hopes to go to Pensacola for flight training and with those 
wings of gold, advance to a newer and faster kind of hot-rod — a Navy jet.

Bob took pride in complete abstainance from extra instruction and feels that "BuAer" 
should make use of his talents, natural and acquired, as an aeronautical engineer. 
"Speedy" made many close friends on the softball team where he was the object of 
much sympathy because of the injuries he sustained shagging foul tips. Actually, he 
was the battalion bowling team, one of the few sports in which he failed to hurt him- 
self and then only because he bowled with the small balls. There are few people any- 
where with Bob's ability for making friends, whether in Hollywood bars, on Florida's 
beaches, or in the jungles of Panama. His ability will be well supplemented by thirty 
years of travel as a Naval aviator. 

Ding is by birth a Navy Junior, by nature a ladies man, by choice a Naval officer, and 
by virtue a man of great leadership and potential. He entered the Academy, after 
graduating from Maury High School, through a competitive Presidential appointment. 
He spent his extracurricular time in the circulation department of the Log and 
Splinter, yet still found that necessary time to maintain "Hydinger's get-big-quick 
course." Photography held the number one spot in Bob's life for each afternoon he 
spent many an hour taking, collecting, processing and disseminating photos in his 
capacity of '59 Lucky Bag Photographic Editor. As for the future, Ding has always 
favored the tin-can Navy, but if the opportunity presents itself, he might make that 
big change to the submarine service.

John came to the Academy well indoctrinated in military life. He gained this experi- 
ence at Quantico Marine Base where he grew up. He attended V. M. I. where he 
majored in electrical engineering for two years before entering the Academy. During 
the fall he could be seen practicing diving in the saw dust pit of Farragut Field. In the 
winter John moved indoors to the Natatorium, where he excelled on the boards. When 
spring rolled around he starred on the company softball team both at first base and at 
the plate. We know John will give his all to the Marine Corps as he did to the Naval 
Academy.

When Bill came to the Academy, he found the Navy nothing new to him as he had 
been brought up in its environment. During the rigors of life as a midshipman he soon 
discovered an entire new phase and came to be known by his classmates as an easy 
going and fun loving person always ready for the end of a Skinny lab, a tune picked 
out on the uke, or a trip to Philly. Few failed to realize, however, that under the sur- 
face, he grasped the basic knowledge and determination that will insure him a fine fu- 
ture as a Naval officer.

Johnny came to the Naval Academy after spending a year at Bullis Prep. He was a 
real slash in the academics but his favorite subject at the Academy was bridge, a game 
at which he became proficient even though it wasn't taught in the classroom. John was 
a real go-getter and threw his heart into whatever he started. This was displayed in 
his two seasons of batt boxing. He always gave his utmost to the bitter end, a charac- 
teristic which will bring him success in the years ahead. 

The quiet but hard-working type, Bob was quick to prove himself capable of fulfilling 
the tasks of a midshipman. He lost no time in falling into the Academy's vast sports 
program, holding a steady hand in jayvee lacrosse and one-hundred fifty pound intra- 
mural football. Although he always enjoyed a good time, his work was never left un- 
done and he was constantly planning for the future. A true Navy man, Bob anticipates 
flight training at Pensacola upon graduation.

This confirmed Rebel came to us despite the fact that he is an Army Brat. Swimming 
was Bill's main sport with fancy diving a specialty. Besides his participation in Plebe 
and varsity swimming, he also did very well in battalion waterpolo. His thriving 
hobby was guns and he is a dead-eye with any weapon. Bill's unusual talent with the 
trombone enabled him to be in the NA-io his entire time. Extraordinary ability and 
interest in flying, makes Bill want to go Navy Air upon graduation, where he'll be one 
of the best pilots in the Fleet.

Phil is one of many staunch Southerners who waved his Confederate flag amongst us

Enthusiastic about non-academic interests, Phil was close to the front of the pack when 
it came to proper admiration for the opposite sex. He spent much of his time sportswise 
also, his main interests being batt gymnastics, track and company football. With his

hence did not stay there or any place else very long. Although he spent most of his

years of the Army, Ralph says he's looking forward to thirty in the Navy. His favorite 
pastimes here at "Tech" were sailing, listening to hi-fi music and managing the var- 
sity cross country team. When he is home Ralph likes to hunt, fish, and read. Upon 
graduation he hopes to win his dolphins. 

A staunch Rebel, John was always active in sports as a member of the Plebe rifle 
squad and as a crack shot on the varsity team for three years. He couldn't spend as 
much time as he wished on the Academy rifle range, so he spent a great deal of 
his leaves hunting with his hounds in North Carolina. During his four years at the 
Academy, John developed a reputation for being a real individualist. This will serve 
him well in the Fleet.

never missed a Bible Class, Prayer Meeting or any other church function. An avid 
hunter and fisherman, there were many times when he nearly had his wives out for a 
week of roughing it. The Navy would have had a sure-fire ail-American if there had 
been a fishing team.

Johnny began his association with military life at Massanutten Military Academy in 
Woodstock, Virginia. Plebe summer, he became intensely interested in the Navy's

Willy was the head of the "Seventh Company weight lifting and racquet swinging as-

man of many talents, he will always be known as the man who really snowed the gals 
on the dance floor with his expert bop, which he worked on almost as much as his 
weight lifting. Naturally enough, all these activities forced Willy into that elite group 
which gathered over the books in the B-hole after taps Second and Third Class years, 
waiting for the firm step of the OOD from without. The ruse always worked, though, 
and he will graduate with the rest of us. 

"A friend in need is a friend indeed." No concentration of words could more aptly 
describe Woody. His English sense of humor, combined with his modest air, made him 
a completely entertaining individual. He was known to collect everything from ancient 
jade snuff bottles to modern pistols. One might call him eccentric, but the scope of his 
education and world travels makes everyone respect him. A bit retiring when it comes 
to the female side of life, one might do well to lean an ear in his direction when he gives 
advice. Although his bagpipes are a thing to be reckoned with, his complete sincerity 
as an individual makes up for this many times over.

managed to maintain above average marks in academics. Although he doesn't care for 
engineering, he is an enthusiastic Navy man. Fred went through Plebe year as a 
representative of the Eighth Company intramural sports squad and then boxed his 
way through Youngster and Second Class year. He has the qualities of a true Naval 
officer and will add greatly to the prestige of the Academy and the Naval Service 
upon graduation.

Blazing through the Northwest Passage, out of the Oregon Territory, came Long Don 
Babcock — drum slung over his shoulder and sticks clenched tightly in his scrawny fist. 
The first five years of his life were spent on the Pacific coast, which undoubtedly ac- 
counts for Don's love of the sea and the Naval Service. He was drum major in high 
school, but at USNA he was content with being the tallest member of the Drum and 
Bugle Corps. His comparative slenderness was very noticeable to the members of the 
Class of '56 but even their fattening diets were unable to add much meat to "D & B's" 
bones. Don's height, however, serves to elevate his thoughts as well as his cranium 
for he is able to easily analyze problems and produce sound solutions with a calm, cool

little difficulty with the academics. He spent much of his free time at his first love, gym- 
nastics. Any afternoon one could find him in MacDonough Hall learning a new trick 
or putting together a routine for the coming meet. During his annual leaves, Don spent 
many hours hunting and fishing in the lake regions of northern Idaho. 



Having overcome many obstacles prior to entering the Naval Academy, Pete was able 
to successfully cope with the obstacles of Plebe year. After this year his success with 
the women provided him and his roommates with a constant source of drags. Although 
his size kept him from participating in football, he showed great skill with a racquet 
and competed in Plebe and battalion tennis and company squash. Pete's ambition 
and determination to succeed carried him through four years at the Academy and will 
undoubtedly make him a success after graduation.

John attended Oregon State College for one year before entering the Naval Academy 
and continued his high academic standing by wearing his stars proudly. During the

and was one of Navy's top sprinters. Extracurricular-wise, John was a member of the

Line has top billet in Jim's mind.

At his best when extolling the merits of Washington, Bill took to the varsity debate 
team. Although a member of the Marine Corps Reserve before coming to the Academy, 
he discovered a great difference between civilian life and life as a Plebe. Bill found an 
outlet in playing the bassoon as well as acting as an official for the Concert Band. In 
addition, he was the company's representative on the Class Crest and Ring Committee. 
No single sport can claim Bill as a devotee. Intramural football, water polo, cross 
country, and Softball vied for his time. Bill has a fine future in the years ahead.

Ted was active in all sports from the excused squad to the perennially popular "fly-

trical Engineering for his exciting laboratory work. His choice of service is Navy Line 
where he hopes to excel as a shiphandler. His skill was amply demonstrated during 
the memorable YP drills in which he acted as OOD. His broad grin and West Virginia

lasting career in the Navy. His friendly mannerisms won him many friends throughout 
the Brigade. Academics proved no obstacle to Joe who, with his keen mind, was able 
to excel and yet find time for sports. His work as a member of the Make-up Gang proved 
invaluable in the theatrical efforts of the dramatic clubs. A born sea-lover, he hopes 
upon graduation, to have the opportunity to meet the challenge afforded to the sub- 
mariner of today.

Frank will be missed in "Club Eleven" after graduation as he was very active in both 
company basketball and volleyball, besides having very good grades. Frank came to 
the Academy from Fairmont State Teachers College which he attended for a year. 
Their loss was our gain, however, which he proved by rowing Plebe crew and being 
placed on the Superintendent's List. Upon graduation, it looks like Navy Fine is going 
to be his next calling so, "we'll see you in the Fleet, Frank."

The banana boat from West Virginia Wesleyan brought Navy a great guy when it 
docked with Moose aboard. With him he brought an unbelievable knowledge of all 
sports and a passion for picking winners and figuring odds. He not only knew a great 
deal about the sporting world but was an excellent all-around athlete himself. Moose 
saw four years of action in company 150 pound football and three years of company 
basketball. Like most of his countrymen, he had an amazing attraction for all the 
ladies although he never seemed to work very hard at it. Cigars, cigarettes and much 
rack time, seem to have been his secret for success at Navy, with a bit of time for the 
books thrown in for luck. Moose's soft spoken mannerisms served as his key to success.

A lifelong ambition to wear Navy Blue, led Pete out of the hills of West Virginia to the 
shores of the Severn via Columbian Prep. With his formidable background he was well 
prepared for academics, which he breezed through with little trouble. His weekends were 
spent in intensive research on the opposite sex. Never settling with one girl he main- 
tained a full harem of young lovelies. Not a man to waste time, his hours at Navy were 
well filled with fencing and with extracurricular activities. His sense of humor and 
genuine liking for USNA, made him enjoy his four year stay and made life a little more 
pleasant for us all. 

On a hot, humid morning four years ago, "Dondi" bade farewell to the mountains of 
West Virginia and walked through Bilger's Gate, shoes over his shoulder. After a long 
struggle, he finally gave in and now may be seen wearing shoes at almost any time. He 
has steadfastly refused, however, to abandon any of the accent which marks him as a 
southern gentleman. Don was active in the extracurricular activities of Usnay, 
starting as an announcer for WRNV as a Plebe, to serving on the NACA council First 
Class year. Rumors circulated actively concerning his cut of the Ring and Crest con- 
cession but nothing was ever proved and the matter was dropped. One thing is certain, 
wherever he goes he will always be a credit to his home, the Academy and the Navy.

The desire for travel, adventure, and excitement were partially satisfied by summer 
cruises after "Thorny" entered the Naval Academy. From early childhood, Paul had a 
dream not unlike that of any other curious, lively boy, filled with the romance of the 
seas and distant lands. After graduation from high school, Paul worked for a year in the 
gas measurement department of a natural gas company near his home and followed 
this by a year at West Virginia Institute of Technology, where he studied engineering. 
Hunting and fishing in the West Virginia mountains are his favorite outdoor sports. 
After graduation, Paul has two definite things in mind, a foreign sports car and a single 
status until he has had a chance to see those distant lands and fulfill his dreams.

Although a member of the Radio Club, Dick still found time to work on his many hob- 
bies, a few of which were reading, stamp collecting, and building models of ships. 
Squeezed into this busy schedule were many hours adding service patches and emblems 
to his already crowded B-robe. He was constantly adding his talents to the company 
cross country and steeplechase teams, plus the battalion football and track teams. A 
far cry from the woods of Wisconsin, Dick plans to "go down to the sea in ships," 
receiving his commission as a Navy Line officer.

Steve, who has the distinction of being the oldest member in the Class of 1959, came to 
us after a year at Dartmouth and some time in the Navy. Academics were no real 
problem for him since as he was a constant member of the Superintendent's list. Sailing 
voyages were a lure that he couldn't resist. Serving as a competent member of the crew 
of the "Royona," he participated in three long ocean races as well as the regular races 
in the Cheasapeake Bay.

Jim was commonly known throughout the Brigade as "Gyro." This nickname was 
picked up in his boyhood days when he was an avid fan of Donald Duck. Young Jim 
took the fateful oath along with the majority of '59 just ten days after his carefree high 
school life ended. His interests as a Plebe centered around football and wrestling and 
after that he stuck to the fall sports and intramural athletics. Along with maintaining 
a 3.2 average, "Gyro" found time to memorize the daily sports page and be a staunch 
supporter of the Braves. As a coin collector, he is presently heading a campaign to make 
silver pennies extinct. 

Coming to Navy directly from high school, Jim was known for his big smile and sense 
of humor. He was never one to let the system get him down. Varsity lacrosse took up 
most of his time, working at it year-round and taking out only time enough to help the 
cause of the company fieldball team. Since academics were of little consequence to Jim, 
he could often be found in the sack listening to the Braves' game or writing lengthy 
letters to his gal. What little time he had left, went into the ever-important planning of 
a career in Navy Air or guided missiles.

Bob came to the Naval Academy from the Middle West, which has long been known as 
a source of naval leaders. From all present indications, he will ably follow in the steps of 
his predecessors. He has been interested in the Silent Service since the end of Plebe 
year and intends to go into submarines upon graduation. He was consistently one of 
the leading athletes in the company and excelled in any sport he tried. Bob will always 
be remembered by his classmates for his interest and participation in class activities 
and the Naval Service will be sure to profit by his future endeavors.

Up in the resort area of Wisconsin, John finished his fifth and final season with the 
carnival and headed for Navy Tech via North Western Prep School. "J. P.'s" mania 
for hypnotism and magic earned him many an additional "come-around" from fun 
loving upper class. In the sports world, this red headed mid worked his way to the Plebe 
and varsity fencing team, interspersed with workouts at his hobby, gymnastics. He 
didn't excel as far as academics went, but then they were not a true test of his abilities. 
He always said, "I'll make it man" and make it man he did.

It's hard to analyze a character who gets up at 0555 on icy winter mornings to exercise 
and who enjoys the art of studying and yet seems normal. Between icy a.m.'s and heavy 
study hours, Roland delighted in the groans of Elvis, the divinity of Wisconsin maidens, 
and in the ever loving Gedunk. Seldom would he be seen without his twin shadow from 
the Second Regiment and often we wonder which twin was the phony. He was a great 
guy to have around. Some of us might not be graduating if he wasn't. 

Those who wandered the passageways of the sixth wing were often attracted by the 
strains of good music. This was most likely Bob and a few other budding musicians 
gathered together for a few hours of enjoyment. A fine musician and a born leader, 
Bob had his own band before coming to the Academy. Nobody has yet been able to 
figure out where he managed to latch on to the "queens" he was often seen dragging 
in the yard. Bob had little trouble with studies and enjoyed sports, especially soccer. 
Careerwise, his interests lean toward flying, and it looks as if the "throttle jockeys" 
are getting a very capable officer.

It was in Sioux City, Iowa, that Pat, who claims to be an Irishman, was born, and the 
effect of fresh air and corn is still with him. After a year of engineering at Loras Col- 
lege, Pat made the logical choice between Annapolis and West Point. At Navy, he was 
active in the Newman, German, and Judo Clubs, but his great personal pleasure was 
reading. His sports included Plebe fencing, batt track, and golf, and he counted hunt- 
ing and fishing among his outdoor callings. His dependability and quiet reserve war- 
rant him success when he goes Navy Line.

On the 29th of June, 1955, the Naval Academy added a little bit of Irish sparkle 
from the far North in the form of David Dennis McCarthy. Mac, as he is affectionately 
known, attended Wisconsin State College for two years and majored in engineering. 
Answering his country's call, he dutifully trudged south to fair Crabtown, leaving 
behind his life of ease and added to the Navy, his good sense of humor, friendliness, 
and high performance. For the future, Mac pictures Navy Air as a fitting fulfillment 
of his life's plans. To him we wish the best of luck and success that only talents such as 
his can attain.

A lubbery sailor from Oshkosh, Greg made quite a name for himself as a varsity dinghy 
sailor 'during his four years at the Academy. In addition to this, he was active in the 
Boat and Photo Clubs. On weekends he was frequently found drag sailing in a yawl 
with one of his "twenty-year old chaperones." As for the future, Greg plans to fly for 
the Marines, concurrent with his wooing of a certain little flicka in Oslo. 

Bob was Navy's Voltaire. His comments on every phase of the system were terse, 
sharp, pungent and always witty. Many times his way was not the Navy way and he 
let everyone within hearing know it. A born Rebel, his spare time was spent with water- 
color paintings, eccentric music and writing his Danish sweetheart across the sea. 
Schultzie was a good companion to "do the town with the boys," what with his sar- 
donic sayings and melancholy mood. Though he hardly ever showed it, he was ap- 
preciative of his four years at Usnay for it "kept the twig bent in the right direction."

Nicknamed "Rock" because of his physical capabilities, Dick is a person with the nicest 
of personalities, a warm and cheery smile, and a ready handshake for friendship. 
With a very high competitive spirit and of German-Swedish stock, this boy was hard 
to beat in the field of academics as well as in the weekend endeavor of dragging. He 
could easily be called, if not the "continental," the "inter-stater." His drags came from 
north and south, east and west. They were invariably very pretty. Dick will find a 
prosperous and successful career in the Navy, for it is his type that make our Navy 
great. His sense of duty, his forcefulness in getting a job done, and his leadership 
qualities will carry him to a brilliant future. 




320 



Becoming a "city boy" at the age of nine, Mac quickly adapted himself to the ways of 
"the asphalt jungle." He progressed through Wyoming's system of public schools in 
Rock Springs without outstanding experiences, save his achievements in athletics, 
notably wrestling. He brought this skill to Usnay. Perhaps the most outstanding 
memories of him in the minds of his wives are those of Mac's rigid diets and training 
habits, and consequently his behavior. Although not a conformist at heart, Mac 
managed, somehow, to keep the number of demerits beneath the maximum prescribed 
by the Executive Department. Mac's determination is sure to take him far in any 
direction he may go.

There is more than one man who owes his sat Skinny or Math mark, in part, to Jack's 
tutoring. His sharp mind and ability to apply himself, place him high in the order of 
merit. His ready sense of humor and easy manner have won him many lasting friends. 
Jack's avid interest spurred him on to become one of the most active members of the 
sailing squadron. His tremendous capacity and vast repertoire of college drinking 
songs made him the life of every party. Jack will always be held in high esteem by his 
subordinates, and will rise high in the ranks of our leaders. 



Dave hails from the wild and wooly state they call the "land of cowboys without a 
body of water in sight." Now Dave was anything but a horseman as witnessed by his 
first summer cruise. The officers were amazed to discover that a cowboy should pos- 
sess so much naval knowledge. Little did they know he served three years as an en- 
listed man. Every weekend was considered a national holiday by Dave. After Satur- 
day's inspection he would trot out the gate with a feminine friend. His unfailing way 
with women was only surpassed by his quick thinking, keen wit, and ability to get along 
with people. Upon graduation, Dave intends to trade his cowboy boots and lariat for 
silver wings and attempt to tame any jet our air arm can offer.

Frank came to the Naval Academy after spending the greater part of his life traveling 
as a Navy Junior. However academics were more of a challenge for Frank. His ability 
to sleep through a 4-N day and still maintain starring grades will always be a puzzle. 
Aside from being an able scholar, he has been the lifeline of support to his wives, from 
supplying cigarettes and dragging money, to pulling them through the intricacies of 
Math, Skinny and Steam. "Hey Frank, how do you work this one?" is the standard 
cry. On the more serious side, Frank's strong willingness to learn and desire to excel 
should make him a vital asset to the Naval Service.

Hailing from Washington, D. C, it is no surprise that Dave holds the record for cover- 
ing that distance. Besides being famous for being the last one to leave the mess hall, 
he will long be remembered by the future generations of Plebes for his addition of 
"No Excuse Sir" to Table Salts. During his four years at Annapolis he was an active 
athlete and put his versatility to good use on the intramural sports squads. His en- 
thusiasm for physical training was broadcasted by the incessant din coming from his 
room as he worked out with his weights.

Hailing from Washington, D. C, and a long line of civilians, Don broke tradition by- 
coming to USNA one short month after graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School 
in D. C. After a season of Plebe soccer here at the Academy, he turned his talents to 
the intramural sports, soccer, football and softball. He was a true midshipman with 
typical interests, females, aviation and athletics. Don's steadfastness, ability and 
personal charm are certain to carry him high on the ladder of success.

Stu, as he was known by his classmates, came to the Academy directly from Woodrow

in New Orleans and having lived there most of his life. Since coming to USNA, Stu 
participated in a variety of activities ranging from the Antiphonal Choir to battalion 
boxing. He agrees with that old saying "Navy Line is mighty fine." After graduation, 
he plans to spend a year or two in the Fleet after which he plans to go to New London 
for submarine school.

Chuck hails from Washington, D. C. His previous military training as a high school 
cadet captain served him in good stead here at USNA. Intramural cross country, 
steeplechase, softball and books served to fill his time. Of course girls are one of his 
chief interests. Chuck hopes to enter the Submarine Service soon after graduation. 
His hard driving approach to a problem is sure to carry him to the top.

Jack, better known as "Fundy," came to us originally from South Carolina, but he 
has spent his last twelve years in Washington, D. C. Before coming to Navy, Jack 
spent one year at the Citadel and three years at the University of Maryland where he 
majored in zoology. Here at Navy, Jack spent most of his free time working with 
WRNV as a disc jockey and as a member of the Board of Directors. He found time, 
however, to be on the Fourth Company 150 pound football team each winter. Jack's 
not sure about his career, but he hopes to fly the big ones for a while.

For Warren, graduation marks the end of four years of matching wits with the Steam 
and Math Departments. He achieved notoriety early in his Academy career when, 
during Plebe summer, he contracted a very serious malady, spinal meningitis. The 
influence of an Army background is reflected in the institutions of learning which he 
has attended — schools in Germany and Switzerland, various schools in the U. S. in- 
cluding New York Military and Sullivan's School. By taking pride in his personal ap- 
pearance, Warren always attracted attention to his military bearing. "The Bone" 
spent many seasons on the Twelfth Company's steeplechase and cross country teams. 

After a mild dash through the Pentagon, Don made it to Navy, only to be ensnarled 
in that inescapable red tape. With his drive and desire to excel, he surmounted the 
obstacles thrown in his path. Handy with his fists, Tony Rubino made a boxer out of 
Don. However, he spent most of Plebe year running cross country, steeplechase and 
batt track. They didn't affect his classic Greek profile and good looks. Sailing is one of 
Don's chief interests, as shown by his participation in the ocean and bay races. The 
Navy's four years of seamanship learning were not spent in vain as Don chooses the 
Line for his service career.

Living in Washington, D. C, and being a Navy Junior, Mike had some contact with 
the Academy prior to entering. After finishing his high school education at Bullis Prep, 
he came to the Academy with some idea of what to expect Plebe year. After a few 
rough swimming tests and many favored renditions of "The Yellow Rose of Texas," 
Mike was glad to move up to the ranks of the upperclass. Second Class year took away 
all ideas of easy life, but Mike still had time to enjoy himself. He took an active part 
in battalion and company sports, playing on championship softball and football teams. 
He also served on the "Reef Points" staff during First and Second Class years. Mike 
plans to win his dolphins and should be a credit to the ranks of the submariners.

Reporting to the Academy directly from Woodrow Wilson High School, Sam soon made 
himself known and liked for his ready smile and friendly manner. Plebe Steam wasn't 
easy for him at first, but with hard work and determination he surmounted this ob- 
stacle. A pitchman of the Twelfth Company soccer team, Sam always did his best in 
that and the other intramural sports in which he participated. During his leisure hours, 
he could be found relaxing with a little music from his hi-fi set — unless he had liberty, 
that is. Just now both Navy Line and Supply Corps are attractive to Sam but which- 
ever he chooses, we can be sure that he will do well.

Realizing a long standing ambition, Bud became the second to represent the McFar- 
lane clan at the Academy. A long time ago he plotted a course for Navy wings and has 
never since changed his heading. Although he presently resides in Washington, Graham, 
Texas proudly claims him as a favorite son. His many-sided abilities led him to a 
variety of achievements. His horsemanship on the varsity gym team, his bass contri- 
bution to the Chapel Choir and his spirited efforts on behalf of the company basket- 
ball team provide a few examples of his diversified interests. Many a Youngster, re- 
calling his first summer in Annapolis, will remember him as the Second Classman who 
first showed him how to make his rack. 

Chuck had to come but a short distance to get to the Naval Academy. D. C. gave us 
a real swell guy. During the fall he could be found tightly gripping a football and run- 
ning hard for the Fifth Battalion gridders. At anytime of the year he could be seen 
dragging a pretty girl. During Second Class summer he traveled to Key West for a 
submarine cruise where he confirmed his ambition to become a submariner. Well- 
liked and respected by his classmates, Chuck has what it takes to go a long way. 
Once he puts his mind to it he can prove to anybody he will come out on top.

David came to Navy after spending a year at Georgetown University. At George- 
town he was enrolled in the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Course, where he got 
his first taste of that rarefied atmosphere so familiar to fliers. While at Navy, he spent 
his non-academic hours playing battalion football, soccer and softball. His great 
love for aviation kept him an active member of the Aeronautical Engineering Club. 
Upon graduation, he hopes to become a candidate in the flight training program at 
Pensacola. "Muff's" winning personality and sharp wit, combined with his drive for a 
Naval career, will certainly go far in making him an excellent Naval officer.

Smitty fitted well into any crowd, finding pleasure in good friends and a cool pipe. A 
good competitor and a strong will to win have served him well on the athletic fields 
here at Navy. He has definite plans about his future, which he will make in Marine 
green. A reservist before entering USNA, the Marines will be glad to have him back. 



Dixie came to the Naval Academy with quite a military background. He was in the 
National Guard for two years and then went to West Point. After losing a fight with 
Russian there, he came to the Naval Academy. He was born in Longbeach, California, 
a Navy Junior, and now calls Arlington, Virginia home. While here at the Academy 
he played batt and company football and company softball. He has been a member of 
the Physics Club and Gun Club for two years. Dixie is undecided about the future 
but the twelve and a half per cent plan may find him back in the Army.

The transition from civilian to military life posed no problem for Jule. Before coming 
to the Academy he attended an honor military school in Hawaii, and the training he 
received there prepared him for the Academy academics with plenty of time left for 
the social life. Jule divided this extra time between company sports, sailing, the Radio 
Club and his voluminous correspondence. His individualism and ability both in aca- 
demics and athletics, combined with his determination to excel in whatever he at- 
tempted, made him one of the outstanding and best liked men of his class.

From the far Pacific came Bob. Like most Hawaiians, he has a pleasant personality and 
a likeable disposition. When he first arrived at the Academy, wrestling attracted his 
interest. After his first match Plebe year he became a staunch supporter and remained 
on the varsity team for three years. Swimming, tennis and soccer rounded out his 
other athletic interests. He also has artistic talent which he demonstrated by helping 
to design his class ring and crest and by his work with the BAC. As for his choice of 
service, submarines rate high on his list.

BYRON N. MacFARLANE

Lanikai, Oahu 



Byron came to us with a collection of tremendous sea stories. One had only to ask about 
the fifty-foot waves he surfed. After telling stories, his favorite indoor sport was bed- 
lam and laughter, a familiar roommate. Music was one of his hobbies although he 
couldn't carry a tune in a Steam kit. This, mixed with his loud voice, produced a rendi- 
tion of the "Hawaiian War Chant" beyond belief. Throughout his fours years at 
USNA, "Mac" has his sights set high in both academics and athletics. He succeeded 
in both, and can be expected to do equally as well in the future. 



All the way from "the land of the grass skirt and hula," journeyed Denny to his new 
home on the Severn. The first week of Plebe year brought him a new name of "Jake," 
which will undoubtedly stick throughout his career. Never one to let studies bother 
him, he divided his time between fencing and sailing. Although excelling in both, he 
still managed to spend some extra time in the pad. With his lasting energy and willing- 
ness to work, Jake should prove a valuable addition to the Navy as a wearer of the 
gold dolphins.

To hear that French accent you would never believe he once placed first in the Bull

Belgium, Jack coasted to star grades and found time to center attention on such ac- 
tivities as the French Club, the Foreign Relations Club, and the Log, of which he 
was editor. Also endowed with a love of athletics, he starred on the varsity soccer team 
as well as in handball and rifle. The Navy will miss him when he returns to his coun- 
try's Minesweeper Fleet.

Royal Military Academy, he was chosen to undergo training here. In December of 
Youngster year, Andre was commissioned an Ensign in the Belgian Navy. Besides 
fighting a continuous Naval war (the Belgian against the American Fleet) with his 
classmates, Andy used his spare time in studying, listening to one of his group of 
"electronics gear," and extolling the merits of Belgian beer. When weekend or leave 
time rolled around, he might well have been found in his room proudly displaying his 
wide gold stripe. The Belgian Navy will benefit greatly from this addition to its ranks.

men, he was sent to USNA to complete the course here, which he has done with dis- 
tinction. In addition to being one of the top academic students in '59, he also did a fine 
job on the soccer field, where he held the position of right half for two years. It was 
easily seen from his active social life at the Academy that he did not find the American 
female too unattractive. Telmo will return to the Ecuadorian Navy as a Lieutenant 
Junior Grade, where the skills he has acquired from his American neighbors are cer- 
tain to stand him in good stead.

find him playing company softball, but as the winter crept in it was away to the 
fencing loft and the sport of gentlemen. Besides fencing for the Plebes and varsity for 
three years, the curly, dark headed "dipper" was a member of the most rigorous 
group at the Academy, the Chess Club. He was also a member of the Spanish Club. Upon 
graduation, John enters the Venezuelan Navy with a promising career ahead, after 
four years on the Severn.

Of the eleven hundred and twenty-eight '59ers who started on the long, hard road 
to success in June of 1955, it was inevitable that some would resign and others 
would be forced to leave for one of many reasons. These three hundred and forty- 
three men were known to many and will never be forgotten. They constitute a 
cross section of the finest men in America, destined to excel in other fields. It was 
sad seeing them leave and sadder for them because they had to leave. A long time 
elapsed before companymates grew accustomed to the lack of a certain smile, a 
unique laugh, an empty seat in class and a friend to help carry the burden of day 
to day problems. Here are fine shipmates, never to be.

While most members of the Brigade were enjoying 
the closing days of their leave, a small group of 
midshipmen straggled into the lower storeroom of 
McDonough Hall and began putting on shoulder 
pads, jerseys, helmets and hip pads. Another gru- 
eling season of practice was about to begin beneath 
the blazing sun. Many are inclined to think that 
the football season runs from the first game of the 
year to the last, but a Navy football player knows 
the true story of the sweat and blood that is the 
season from the middle of August to the last game 
in November. To them, however, none of these 
miseries bothered. They played because they want- 




•» 



ed to, not because they had scholarships to keep. 
With a line that averages far less than any other 
college team in the country, and small backs as 
well, the team, through its desires to play and 
work, developed into one of the best in the coun- 
try. With a near-infallible coach who gave his all 
for his players, the Navy team smashed many a 
rugged and heavy team. Since the beginning of 
football at the Naval Academy, every football 
team has made anyone who knew them extremely 
proud and the 1958 team was far from being an 
exception.

Of all the people in the world who work and receive little reward, 
there is a group of football players known as the Navy "Poolies" 
or Junior Varsity who work harder for less than any other group 
at the Naval Academy. They sweat the entire week and on 
Saturdays are in the stands with the rest of the Brigade to cheer 
the men on whom they had to push around all week. It was the 



spirit and fortitude of these unsung heroes that made it possible 
for the Varsity to slug out a victory on Saturday afternoon. 
They were all aware that they had to prove themselves before 
they could move inside "The Big Green Fence." It is from this 
group that Coach Erdelatz picked deserving men to become part 
of the front line force.

The traditional Homecoming opener was plagued 
by a wind-driven rainstorm while Navy rolled up a 
victory over William and Mary in the last football 
game ever to be played in Thompson Stadium. 
After an Indian drive to the Navy 19, Navy 
battled on the ground while W&M kept the con- 
test even by using the air. Navy's big chance came 
when Joe Matalavage, with a fourth and two sit- 
uation, picked up 8 yards to the W&M 5 yard line. 
Joe Tranchini at quarterback went over right 
tackle for the score, with Matalavage picking up 
the two points after touchdown. Roland Brand- 
quist provided the big break in the second half by 
recovering a fumble on the Navy 39 and Tranchini 
topped the drive with a flat pass to Matalavage 
for the touchdown. Captain Dick Dagampat and 
Joe Bellino rolled up a good percentage of Navy's 
192 yards as the team started off the season with a 
solid victory. Navy 14 William and Mary o

Tranchini and the running and receiving of Ray 
Welborn, Dick Dagampat, and John Kanuch, 
pulled away to a 20-6 halftime lead. Tranchini 
completed 18 of 27 passes to tie the Naval Acad- 
emy record for completions in a single game, a 
performance that merited his selection as Associ- 
ated Press "Back of the Week." Coach Erdalatz 
gave the second and third teams much needed 
playing experience in the final two periods. These 
alternate units showed up well in what was, for 
many of them, their first varsity game. Jim Max-

Pete Van Nort, Navy's reserves, proved their 
merit. Navy 28 Boston University o

More than 82,000 fans watched Navy sink a favored Michigan .team 
at Ann Arbor. Navy took the opening kickoff and drove to its own 
40, but stalled there and Joe Tranchini punted to tailback Brand 
Myers who fumbled on the Michigan 38 yard line. End Tom Hyde 
pounced on the ball to give Navy its first scoring opportunity. Ray 
Wellborn set up the score with a 22 yard gallop on a draw play, fol- 
lowed by a "Trigger" Joe pass to John Kanuch for the touchdown. 
Two determined Michigan marches were thwarted before the Wol- 
verines finally tied the score 6-6 as the half closed. The defensive efforts 
of center Milan Moncilovich and guard Don Chomicz were instrumen- 
tal in halting Michigan's first two drives but then the big Wolverines, 
averaging 16 pounds per man heavier than Navy, marched 76 yards 
in ten plays to take a 14-6 lead as the second half got underway. 
Tranchini countered by leading Navy on two touchdown drives. He 
completed five consecutive passes as the Middies marched 67 yards 
for a score by Buddy Wellborn to climax the first strike. The second 
and deciding drive ended with a perfect 31 yard pass to Dick Zem- 
brzuski with five minutes remaining in the game. Zeke then crashed 
over for the two points after touchdown and Navy led 20-14. The 
Tars halted a final drive by Michigan to preserve a come-from-behind 
victory and an undefeated record. Navy 20 Michigan 14.

In the fourth game of a series which began in 1949, 
Tulane surprised everyone with a victory over 
Navy, maintaining a perfect record against the 
midshipmen. Tulane took the ball on the kickoff 
and promptly fumbled to Navy on the 23. Navy 
was unable to capitalize on this break, however, and 
the battle progressed during the first period with a 
determined Tulane team holding Navy away from 
the goal line. In a game that saw rugged line play 
on both sides, Ritchie Pettibone, Tulane's star 
quarterback, led his team to their first score. Tran- 
chini was able to put a perfect strike into Joe Bel- 
lino's hands at the close of the second period to 
make the score 7-6 in favor of the Green wave. In 
the second half, a seesaw battle took place with 
Tulane dominating on the ground. Pettibone was 
able to direct his team to the clinching score and 
hold off a final drive of Navy with Jim Maxfield 
calling the plays. Tulane had the spirit and power 
to prove that their previous record of o wins and 
4 losses was not indicative of what they could do, 
and Navy left Norfolk with its first loss and a host 
of injuries. Navy 6 Tulane 14

As the big Navy team unveiled their powder blue 
jerseys, a great cheer went up from the First Reg- 
iment of Midshipmen gathered in Franklin Field 
at Philadelphia. Navy went right to work and the 
first team sent Wellborn through the line for fifty 
yards on the first play to set up the first TD by Dick 
Dagampat. The second team then proceeded to roll 
up the score with pass plays clicking and the line 
battering the Quakers from end zone to end zone. 
The score at the half was 28 to 8 and Navy was well 
on its way to another victory. The regulars started 
the second half and departed after Wellborn pushed 
over a score. The third team, led by Jack Livengood, 
continued the pasting with exceptional play-calling 
and passing. Coach Erdelatz was able to use all of 
the 39 men on his squad and they rolled up 545 
yards and 25 first downs. Navy 50 University of

Collegiate football's longest unbroken intersectional 
rivalry was resumed in Baltimore when Navy (4-1) 
met Notre Dame (3-2) for the 32nd battle in the 
series. Notre Dame started the afternoon off with 
the first score on a 10 yard pass play. On the fol- 
lowing kickoff Joe Bellino took a reverse and scooted 
92 yards to make the score 7-6 in favor of the Irish. 
George Izo, Notre Dame quarterback, broke the 
game wide open in the second period by hitting in 
the air to set up one touchdown, getting another on a 
34 yard pass play, and less than a minute later 
heaving a 38-yarder for their fourth touchdown. 
Tranchini led the battling Tars back with a drive 
which ended with a perfect pass to Joe Bellino, 
good for the touchdown. Late in the final period 
Jim Maxfield hit Dick Zembruski in the flat to 
round out Navy's 20 points. Notre Dame's big line 
and the emergence of Izo as a passer of the first 
caliber, was a combination that made it possible 
for Notre Dame to run up 24 first downs for 522 
yards with 40 big points to hand the Midshipmen 
their worst defeat in 5 years. Navy 20 Notre Dame 40

Navy's passing took the starch out of the Terrapins

Maryland as they managed to march 50 yards in 
4 minutes for the first score and follow this up with 
a drive to the Navy two yard line where Jim Ten- 
brook recovered a vital fumble. Jim Maxfield then 
took to the air, with a drive of 98 yards in 12 plays 
which was climaxed when Tenbrook took a pitch- 
out for the touchdown. The Middies then went 77 
yards for the leading score. This drive featured two 
beautiful catches; one by Tom Albershart for 31 
yards, and one by Joe Bellino for 19. Joe Matalavage 
crashed over from the one as the half ended 12 to 7, 
Navy. The second half was dominated by Navy in 
the air, with "Trigger" Joe tossing the ball, and 
Navy on the ground with Joe Matalavage rolling 
up yardage which was to give him a total of 102 
yards for the game. In the third period Dick Pari- 
seau grabbed a Maryland pass on the 24 and quickly 
turned it into another Navy score. Maryland's 
turtle snapped once more as they got on the score- 
board again early in the fourth period. Navy halted 
any further scoring ideas by romping 69 yards with 
Dick Zembruski scoring. Good line play and a stand 
out performance by George Fritzinger at guard, 
enabled Navy to turn in a job well done. Navy 40

On a dark, rainy afternoon, Navy and George Washing- 
ton met at Griffith Stadium for Navy's first appearance 
in Washington since 1934. Early in the first period, GW 
capitalized on a fumble and scored their first touchdown 
on a Hino to Colna pass. Navy came right back with Joe 
Matalavage's hard running and Joe Bellino's move to 
the twenty on a pass interference call. The wet field 
made it tough going though and GW recovered a fum- 
ble on the 7-yard line. Early in the second period, Joe 
Bellino took the ball through the middle and rang up 
the equalizing 6 points. The half ended with a goal line 
stand by Navy after Tranchini's attempted kick was 
blocked and recovered on Navy's 10 by GW. The Blue 
team came out strong in the second half and scored 
two touchdowns in 6 plays. Matalavage set up the first 
touchdown with a perfect strike to John Kanuch and 
Joe Bellino went over for the two points after touch- 
down to make the score 14-6. After a GW fumble, big 
Pete Van Nort got behind the GW defense and Max- 
field hit him on a 66-yard pass play for a TD. The final 
quarter was marred by fumbles and interceptions by 
both sides. Navy was caught for a safety, but Bob 
Correll came back with 6 more points for Navy. Navy

•A 8s*s 




A chilling wind failed to discourage the spectators 
in Memorial Stadium at Philadelphia on the day of 
the Big Game. It was cold, the Bermuda turf was 
brand new, the sky was clear, and the Navy was 
ready to go against the Army. Coach Eddie Erde- 
latz astounded the spectators by springing one of 
the most controversial innovations of the year on 
the Cadets, when Navy came out of its first huddle 
into a novel double wing formation. With halfback 
Dick Dagampat outside, and two yards behind the 
right end, fullback Ray Wellborn would go in motion 
and take up the opposite position on the left side, 
thus giving Tranchini two more receivers who could 
get open in a hurry. This offense fooled the Black 
Knights the entire first half and Navy took full ad- 
vantage. In the first period, capitalizing on Daw- 
kin's kickoff fumble, Navy moved to the 13. From 
there Tranchini hit John Kanuch over the middle 
at the three and Joe Bellino followed the fine block- 
ing of Don Chomicz into the end zone for Navy's 
only score. Ray Wellborn's kick was wide and the 
score stood 6 to o for Navy. Later in the first period 
Army recovered a fumble and moved to the Navy 
13 yard line. Alert Tom Albershart grabbed the 
ball back on the Army fullback's fumble. Tranchini 
then started what appeared to be another drive 
which was spurred by the substitution of Navy's 
second team under the direction of quarterback 
Jim Maxfield. Army dug in at their own 15, however, 
and held for four downs.

Late in the second period Army took a Navy punt 
on its own 32 and went 68 yards in 13 plays for its 
first score. Bob Anderson, Army's halfback found a 
hole in Navy's line and carried the ball for seven of 
those plays. Now it was the Big Blue's turn to dig 
in and they held Anderson for four plays but he 
managed to squeeze in for their first touchdown. 
Fullback Walter's kick split the uprights and the 
score at halftime left Army out in front 7 to 6. Dur- 
ing the halftime Army's coach, Red Blaik, gave his 
first team a good briefing on Navy's surprise offense 
and things looked a little tougher on the field as the 
second half got underway. The beginning of the third 
period was hard fought with both lines charging 
hard and a seesaw battle taking place. Late in the 
period the Cadets started a drive from their 42 
yard line with Anderson punching away at the tack- 
les. He bulled his way over from the two and Wal- 
ter's kick made it 14 to 6. Navy battled back with 
Tranchini at the Navy 38 and romped unhampered 
into the end zone with only two minutes remaining. 
Anderson then took a pass from Dawkins on the 
Cadet's run-pass option to set the final score of the 
game. Navy's line displayed the Midshipmen's 
determination when it repulsed two earlier attacks 
on the 5 yard line and again on the 22. Army's line 
and all-around backfield had been too much for the 
game Navy team, but as the Navy Blue and Gold 
was sung, each Midshipman, to a man, knew that 
we would return next year to "BEAT ARMY!"

Coach Glen Warner and Captain 
John Meehan 



This year's Soccer Team was led into action by a 
strong experienced group of First Classmen who 
were undefeated as a Class their Plebe year. This was 
to be the year to go all the way, for twice in the pre- 
vious two years the National Championship was 
the goal and twice the goal was left unattained. The 
team was captained by All-American candidate John 
Meehan, who is, in the words of Coach Glen Warner, 
"The greatest soccer player to ever set foot on a 
Navy field." Unfortunately, as the team prepared 
for the first game with Duke, old injuries began to 
plague them as they had in the two years previously. 
The first to fall prey were fullback "Skipper" Yerkes 
and wingman Dick Abington. Within a month every 
First Classman, plus Second Classman Karl Ripple- 
meyer, were doing their best to overcome some 
type of injury. As the season opened, however, the 
"Big Blue," with the able play of Youngsters Dick 
Stengel, Wally Cawein, Tom Teal, and Second 
Classmen Bob Parker, Bill Kee, Bob White and 
Johnny Martin, blasted their way off with a smart 
5-0 victory over Duke University. The "Navy 
Tiger" jumped into the fray with Bucknell and 
finished ahead with a strong 4-1 score. Then up 
popped the old devil himself in the form of Penn 
State. Any soccer team to be worth its salt has to 
beat the State boys, for they are always among the 
best in the Nation. It seemed that Navy was all 
over the field and Penn State couldn't hold the pace. 
Time and again Navy made use of the fast break to 
get off hot shots at the State goalie. Dick Stengel 
took a corner beautifully from Jack Haumont and 
netted it with his head. The ultimate result was the 
downfall of Penn State.

After whipping Swarthmore, it was time to get in 
shape for the Army Mule and the "Mids turned to 
and mustered the working party." It was the season 
for getting N-Stars and B-Robes. There was a feeling 
in the air that today was the day as the big one rolled 
around. At the opening whistle, Navy tackled and 
moved into Army territory from which the ball did 
not move for 15 minutes. Navy banged away, but 
could not get one. Then the unexpected happened 
and the Army left wing picked up the ball and moved 
into Navy territory. As Johnny Martin moved out 
to pick him up at the 30-yard stripe, the wing de- 
cided to cross the ball to his other side. The wind, 
which whistled across the "Plain," turned the ball 
90 degrees and Bill McKee was stunned to see the 
ball sail over his head and into the net. A few minutes 
later a bouncing ball caught Skip Yerkes in the hand 
in the penalty area. Navy continued to show their 
fighting spirit and fought back all the harder after 
the penalty kick had been scored, yet was unable to 
get a single tally. The statistics were overwhelming- 
ly for Navy, 20 shots to 4, yet the score stood Army 
2, Navy o. In the words of General Douglas Mac- 
Arthur: "It is on these fields of friendly strife which 
are sown the seeds, which on other days on other 
fields will bear the fruits of victory.

At first glance, a record of four wins and 
three losses is not impressive. A look at 
the season and background, however, 
would show that the Navy Cross Country 
Team was a difficult opponent in both 
dual and triangular meets; Some of the 
toughest teams in the East were encoun- 
tered, as Navy kicked up the dust against 
Penn State, Syracuse and Army. The 
fact that seven different men took firsts 
for Navy indicates that there were many 
fine runners. The largest single factor 
with which the team had to contend was 
the problem of injuries, which kept four 
of the returning lettermen out of action 
during most of the year. Both Bob Kunkle 
and Les Palmer were unable to run in all 
but two races. Because of a knee injury, 
sustained during the summer, Brad Smith 
ran only with much pain. It was his en- 
durance which enabled him to pile up so 
many of Navy's points. The steady run- 
ning of Frank Young, Ken MacLeod, 
Chico Chavez and Bob Dunkle made the 
Navy team one to be respected. Captain 
Dick Winter finished in the first five for 
Navy in every race of the season. His 
leadership and example were an inspira- 
tion to the entire team, as he drove his 
teammates across the finish line, time and 
time again.

Under the tutelage of Coach Jack Cloud, a former 
William and Mary All-American and professional 
standout, the Navy 150-Pound Football Team once 
again completed a winning season. Upholding its 
reputation of being Navy's most successful varsity 
team since its origin some thirteen years ago, this 
season's squad exhibited a spirited "never-s ay-die" 
attitude throughout each contest. Opening the sea- 
son against Pennsylvania, Navy found their offen- 
sive patterns operating to perfection and powered 
to a decisive victory over an aggressive, but out- 
classed, Quaker eleven. The following week, the 
"Big Red" of Cornell offered a stubborn defense, 
but the "Big Blue" came out victorious as the re- 
sult of superb line play and a crunching ground at- 
tack. The spirit was high and the outlook optimistic 
the next weekend as the team journeyed to West 
Point to meet the "Kaydets" in the big game of the 
year. The determination and desire for this victory 
was evidenced in each crackling tackle by the Navy 
defenders. But the Black Knights of the Hudson, 
behind the magic ball-handling of quarterback 
Ralph Wensinger, maneuvered to a decisive victory. 
The defeat was a bitter pill to swallow, but as true 
champions the Mighty Mites rolled with the punch, 
and literally rolled over their final three opponents. 
The Navy lightweights sent Columbia back to the 
banks of the Cayuga reeling from a 38-8 decision and 
the following weekend continued their mastery over 





Coach Jack Cloud and Captain George Simmons 



their Ivy-League rivals by trouncing a good Rutgers 
contingent. The Navy 150-Pound Team had come of 
age, and behind the inspired leadership of the squad's 
First Class members, Navy looked forward to the 
final encounter of the season against a proven Prince- 
ton squad that held an identical four and one record. 
Before a cheering home crowd the Mighty Mites 
powered through a determined and stubborn "Tiger" 
eleven to emerge with a well-deserved 12-0 victory. 
The final whistle marked the end of varsity compe- 
tition for most of the 1959 graduates, but in the eyes 
of the undergraduate players it ignited a spark that 
will undoubtedly carry over to next season, high- 
lighted by a victory over Army. The 150-Pound 
Squad was indeed a team, for each game evidenced 
a mighty team effort that spotlighted not one or 
two outstanding personalities, but a closely-knit 
unit that carried over the aggressive play of the 
practice field onto the gridiron each Saturday after- 
noon. Led by three-year letter winners; Captain 
George Simmons, Leonard Etcho, Bill Honadle, 
Walt Szczypinski, Dick Westphal and Sam Shiver- 
decker, as well as such performers as Tom Mariano, 
Jim McCune and Sid Scriggs, the Mighty Mites 
showed a type of courage and determination which 
well represented the Brigade and the Naval Service. 
The often quoted sports proverb, "It's not the size, 
but the fight that counts," summarizes well the 
quality and performance of our colorful Mighty 
Mites.

football 




George Fritzinger 

Truly a Navy great not "only as an out- 
standing football player, both offensively 
and defensively, but an individual who 
possessed the qualities of leadership that 
meant so much to the Navy team of 1958. 
George's middle name should be "desire." 



Joe Tranchini 

With a year of competition remaining, 
Joe Tranchini at this point in his career 
has shown the qualities to be listed as one 
of the Navy greats. He is an outstanding 
football player in every respect. It is felt 
by his coach that if he continues to im- 
prove he may be placed in the same cate- 
gory with George Welsh and Tom For- 
restal. 



soccer 



Navy has had many Soccer play- 
ers who have been honored as All 
Americans but none who have 
been as worthy as John Meehan, 
Captain of this year's team. 
Throughout his career at the 
Academy, he played a consistent- 
ly brilliant game. The position at 
center halfback is the key to both 
the defense and offense — a posi- 
tion made to order for him. Oppo- 
nents soon discovered that if they 
were to score, it couldn't be done 
"down the middle." In analyzing 
John's game, one would have to 
say that his outstanding quality 
is his "ball controll" — the things 
that he can do with the ball are 
fantastic to say the least. He is a 
master of kicking with either foot, 
heading, dribbling, tackling and 
trapping; all the fundamentals to 
make a complete player. Many 
times in games against threaten- 




John Meehan 



ing forward lines when he ap- 
peared "beaten," he would man- 
age to get some part of his knee 
or foot on the ball to clear it. On 
the occasions when a fast break 
developed with two men bearing 
down on John, his faking and sure 
tackling enabled him to kill off 
the advantage in convincing man- 
ner. John possessed remarkable 
judgement in anticipating situa- 
tions enabling him to steal the 
ball on defense and to quickly 
initiate an offensive play. The 
fact that his teammates elected 
him their Captain indicates the 
confidence they have in him. He 
made a fine leader, displaying real 
courage with an intense desire to 
win. He was placed on the spot at 
the beginning of the year when 
his coach declared him "Navy's 
greatest."

cross country 




Brad Smith 



Dick Winter 



The finest Cross Country runner that 
Navy has had in history, Brad blossomed 
in his Second Class year and was the num- 
ber one man on the squad for two years. 
He ran faster than any other Navy man 
on all courses. During the 1957 season he 
finished first or second in all the races he 
ran. Never missing a practice or a meet, 
he still pressed on and was constantly the 
leading Navy man across the finish line. 



Dick was the first man to ever Captain 
a Navy Cross Country team two years 
in a row. Elected after a very strong 
Youngster season, he worked up to be 
a very consistent member of the 1957 
squad. He was not often at the front of 
the pack but was an invaluable man in 
that he could bring other team members 
with him to the front. His determination 
was a fine inspiration to all team members. 




Len Etcho 

Len Etcho won the Sexton Memorial Tro- 
phy this year. This honor was voted him 
by his team mates. His fine defensive 
playing throughout the season made him 
the apple of all the coaches eyes. The in- 
scription on the Sexton trophy, "The 
most outstanding in character, leader- 
ship, and sportsmanship", is a true char- 
acter reading of Len.

George Simmons 

George Simmons was Captain of the 150 
Pound Football Team and proved to be 
an outstanding leader. He was the center 
and was one of the gold dust twins. It 
was a coaches delight not to worry about 
the most vital line position in football 
which he held well in hand.

basketball 



The basketball team enjoyed one of its best seasons during 
the 1959 season and its performance was the best the class 
could remember. Led by Ron Doyle, Dick Johnson, Jim 
Bower, Jay Metzler, Dick Brown and Frank Delano, all 
worked hard to bring home Navy victories. With Metzler 
and Bower controlling the boards, the team was able to em- 
ploy a tight and successful zone defense. Bower's name ap- 
peared often in the high scoring column although he was 
plagued by a third quarter scoring jinx. While the Brigade 
was enjoying their Christmas Leave, the team met Kentucky, 
Vanderbilt and Butler. Meeting defeat at the hands of both 
Kentucky and Butler, the Blue and Gold managed to return 
from Christmas circuit with a victory over Vanderbilt. One 
of the season's thrillers which kept all of the Navy fans on 
the edges of their seats was the Manhattan game played in 
New York. Manhattan piled up a wide lead at half time only 
to have Navy come roaring back to take the lead and finally 
tie the game, however, Manhattan won in the overtime. 
American University's "game of the season" came at the end 




Captain Dick Johnson and Coach Carnevale 



of January and the school had a strong representation at 
the Field House to meet a newly determined Navy team. 
The pattern of play throughout the game was such that 
Navy had the advantage of getting more rebounds and were 
far more accurate than their lively opponents. After some 
beautiful playing by both teams, the game ended in a Navy 
victory. The final game with Army proved to be the hardest 
fought and best played game of the year. Both teams showed 
the determination and sportsmanship indicative of Army- 
Navy conflicts. Due to their excellent record, Navy was 
tapped to be one of the participants in the NCAA Tourna- 
ment.

"Seasoning" was the key word to describe the story of the 
'59 Navy Wrestling Team. Graduation plus injuries in im- 
portant positions produced a team with six new faces in the 
starting eight. This lineup found the going easy at the begin- 
ning of the season as Gettysburg fell and the U. S. Merchant 
Marine Academy followed; however, the schedule got tougher 
as the season progressed and Navy's lack of experience began 
to show. Maryland, the Atlantic Coast Conference Cham- 
pions, was the first team to beat the Blue and Gold. The well 
balanced teams of Penn State, Lehigh and Pittsburgh fol- 
lowed, each team handing Navy a defeat. While Navy was 
making mistakes, it was gaining experience. Against the top 
wrestling teams in the East, these errors cost Navy points, 
matches and meets. Most of the new faces this year were 
those of Youngsters, and all are confident that '59's rugged 
season will provide an excellent foundation for the teams that 
follow.

Many of Navy's spirited rooters were more than 
pleased when they ventured to the Natatorium 
to witness one of Navy's best swimming teams. 
Under the coaching of John Higgins, swimming 
proved to be one of the Academy's most produc- 
tive and exciting sports. The team Captain for 
the '58-'59 season was Bob "Boots" Ceres, who 
held down the top position in the 440 and 220 
yard freestyle events. Jim Regan was ace sprinter 
and was responsible for many of Navy's points. 
Tom Long broke the 200 yard breaststroke record 
his Youngster Year only to have it broken by 
another Youngster, Pat Taft, this year. A big 
loss was Bill Neville, another Firstie, who was 
unable to swim because of his expired eligibility 
for collegiate competition. Most of the Segundoes 
on the squad returned after fine performances on 
last year's team, among whom were Mike Porter, 
200 yard butterflyer; Ron Booth and Jerry Mon- 
tague, backstrokers; Ward O'Brien, diver; Dallas 
Boggs, distance man and Pat Cecil and Dave 
Bolden, freestyle sprinters. The bulk of the squad 
was made up of Youngsters coming from last 
year's undefeated Plebe squad. Four of them, 
Arnie Kleban, Pat Taft, George Worthington, and 
Curt Norfleet, teamed up to break the 400 yard 
medley relay record in one meet. In the same 
meet Dick Oldham, Gus Keolanui and Curt Nor- 
fleet combined with Jay Blanke broke the Naval 
Academy 400 yard freestyle relay record.

Coach Chet Phillips' outstanding performers 
Captain Furman Sheppard and top all-around 
man Jack Morgan were backed up by a team that 
will go on record as one of Navy's best. Although 
plagued by injuries, the tumblers came through 
in fine style, keeping Navy ahead from the start; 
returning Youngster letterman Paul Sparks was 
backed up by the amazing Joe Marshall and Paul 
Carwin. Navy will surely miss its fabulous side- 
horse men, Eastern Champ Sheppard, Eastern 
medalist Bud MacFarlane and Jimmy Brown who 
rivaled them both. Their flawless routines made 
the sidehorse Navy's strongest event, the trio to 
be feared most by opponents. Jack Morgan and 
Don Cromer came back as Firsties to continue 
to amaze spectators with jaw-dropping perform- 
ances on the high bar while Gary Wheatley fin- 
ished his gymnastics career as a top-flight rope 
climber. Top performers on the tricky parallel 
bars included Jack Morgan and Bob Riddell who 
came up fast to become one of the best, and Bruce 
Krueger, a top-notch Youngster. On the flying 
rings, top honors went to Chauncey Fairchild, 
Phil Chamberlain and Jim Rucker, another trio 
whose spectacular grace will be missed next year. 
Coach Phillips will always be able to look wist- 
fully back on '59ers and the best Navy Gym Team 
in years.

National Collegiate champions, MIT and Am- 
herst. Displaying exceptional balance and depth 
with returning lettermen Bob Harmuth, Tony 
LaSala, Pete Latimer and Dave Lowry as well 
as Bill Manning, Rusty Chain and Ivon Lowsley, 
Navy baffled its opponents with a hard hitting 
attack which no one was able to stop. Sparked

was every reason to believe that Navy would 
once again sweep the field, and capture the 
national title.

The indoor track team, in '59 could take advan- 
tage of their second season in the new Field House. 
Under the leadership of Captain Fred March, 
holder of the Field House record for the 600 
yard run, the team made an outstanding showing 
against such schools as Princeton, Penn State, 
Pitt, Maryland and in the VMI relays. In the 
60 yard dash, Art Smith and George Van Houten 
rarely missed a sweep. The polevaulters Bob 
Beaton, Academy record holder, Bob Michael, 
and Bud Maxson proved to be Navy's surest 
point getters. Dick Super and John Prichard 
were fine broad jumpers. In the weights, Jim 
Hart and Paul Mankowich produced excellent 
tosses. Concluding with a performance in the 
Heptagonal Games, the team did well both in 
its own right and in preparing for the outdoor 
season.

fencing 



Once a required course in physical training, 
fencing is a sport in which Navy teams have con- 
sistently been among the best in the nation. Navy 
fencers have not suffered a losing season since 
1914, certainly a record of which the Academy 
can be proud, and this year's team was one of the 
most talent-laden squads in the history of Naval 
Academy fencing. It was led by Captain Frank 
Larson, the North Atlantic Foil Champion and 
one of the finest foilmen in the country. The epee 
boasted Roland Wommack, all-American and 
nominee for the i960 Olympics. The outstanding 
sabreman was Al Morales who has seldom lost 
an intercollegiate bout. The team fared well 
having lost five starters from the 1958 team and 
indicated that a fine rebuilding job by Coach 
Andre Deladrier had been done. The 1959 team 
proved themselves able to maintain and augment 
the fine traditions of Navy fencing teams.

pistol 



Navy's pistol team proved that its reputation for 
cool heads and steady hands was well deserved. 
Sparked by Maynard, Shafer, and Hawkins, 
Navy habitually fired its pistols with the precision 
demanded to bring home victories. In meets 
against the Merchant Marine Academy, the Coast 
Guard Academy, Villanova and Virginia, the team 
perfected the form which carry them through the 
all-important Army meet.

Navy's Rifle Team came back this year after 
placing second in the nation during the 1958 
season with five First Class and several talented 
Second and Third Classmen. The team started 
the year by piling up 1422 points against Catholic 
University and then proceeded to raise the score 
by an average of ten points in each of the next 
three matches. This brought them to a grand 
total of 1452 points, only two points away from 
the range record. Men such as Captain John 
Gunther, John Vaughan, Ben Todd, Jim Ramsey 
and George Ballantine gave Navy these decisive 
victories. The Army match proved to be a test 
of interservice gunnery rivalry.

Roland Wommack 
The Fencer of the Year is a 
title that Mac most certainly 
deserves. There is not a single 
epee championship in North 
America that he has not won. 
His performances have gained 
him bids to compete for the 
United States in both the 1959 
Pan American games and the 
i960 Olympics. 



wrestling 




Doug Volgenau 
One of the strongest men ever 
to enter the Academy, Doug 
lost but once this year and this 
for the first time since his high 
school days. When the match 
was close he could always be 
counted on for those few extra 
points to win. 




Al Morales 

During the past few years Al 
has risen to be the top sabre 
man in the country, winning 
NCAA individual champion- 
ship and being tapped for the 
i960 Olympics. With another 
year of competition ahead he 
has unlimited possibilities. 



basketball 




Dick Johnson 

Dick was the spark plug of 
Navy's best basketball team 
in ten years. He was nation- 
ally ranked in foul shooting, 
averaging 87.3%. A member of 
the team since Third Class 
Year, his fine playing did much 
to gain Navy's NCAA berth. 




Joe Paletta 

Joe has lurked in the shadow 
of Navy's Fencing Captain, 
Frank Larsen, for most of the 
year but when the test was 
greatest he proved his worth. 
In the NCAA Championship 
he captured Frank's title; indi- 
vidual Foil Champion. 



basketball 




Jim Bower 

Only a Second Classman, Jim 
was the team's high scorer and 
playmaker. His outstanding 
performance in the NCAA 
along with his drive and deter- 
mination should make him one 
of Navy's best in the 1960- 
196 1 season.

Bob Ceres 
An excellent collegiate swim- 
mer, Boots was a steady point- 
getter in the 220 and 440 
sprints. Hampered by illness 
during the '59 meet against 
Army, he nevertheless climaxed 
the season leading the best 
Navy swimming team to a vic- 
torious season. 




Tony La Sala 
As captain of the squash team, 
Tony led his nine to the Na- 
tional Championship in 1959 
which was highlighted by an 
undefeated season. His fine 
sportsmanship also gained for 
him a position in the Squash 
Individual National Cham- 
pionship competition. 




Furman Sheppard 
As the quiet, easygoing Gym- 
nastics Captain, Furman put 
the finishing touches on the 
most outstanding individual 
gym career ever to occur at the 
Naval Academy. As a side- 
horse specialist, Furman domi- 
nated the event for three years 
in intercollegiate competition.

Fred March 

Sparking the newly-formed 
Navy Indoor Track Team, 
Fred finished third in the 600- 
yard sprint and anchored the 
second place for the 2-mile re- 
lay in the Heptagonals. His 
versatility allows him to run 
any type race. 



pistol 



Mike Maynard 

"Have-gun-will-travel Mike 
Maynard" successfully led the 
pistol team to a 6-1 season. Al- 
ways one to be relied on for a 
high score, Mike ended his last 
season by scoring 282 points in 
defeating Army. 



rifle 




John Gunther 
One of the finest .shooters to 
ever fire a rifle for Navy, John 
consistently brought home 
many points in aiding the cause 
of victory.

class 
officers 



The duty of the Class Officers was to unify the Class on any 
program pertaining to or arising within the Class. They 
acted directly or through the First Class Company Repre- 
sentatives. In addition, each Officer had many individual 
responsibilities. The Class President was responsible for the 
management of the Class Honor Committee and the Brigade 
Executive Committee, and sat as chairman on both. The 
President was also the direct representative for the Class to 
the Executive Department. The duties of the vice-President 
were identical with those of the President, and he assumed 
such duties in his absence. To the Secretary fell the task of 
all class correspondence, with the added responsibility of 
being recording secretary at all Class Honor Committee and 
Brigade Executive Committee meetings. The Treasurer 
handled the class funds and records of all transactions con- 
cerned. It was the Class Officers who were responsible for 
the successful administration of the Brigade policy of the 
Class of 1959.

ring dance committee 



The members of the Class of 1959 will always be 
proud of the symbol of their fraternity with each 
other and the Academy. It was the responsibility 
of the Ring and Crest Committee to submit de- 
signs of their crest to the class for their selection of 
that treasured triangle of gold which we received 
just before our first June Week. Soon after the 
selection of a crest began a lengthy indoctrination 
in the mechanics of ring making. The Committee 
took care to contract the company presenting the 
design which best met the high standards of an 
Academy Ring. Delivery of the rings in time 
for the Ring Dance marked the completion of 
their task; a moment of pride for the Committee 
and for the class it served. 




For all of us the most memorable moment of our 
four years at Navy came during the first evening 
of our Second Class June Week. We waited three 
years for the hour when each of us would receive 
our symbol of fraternity. To those of the Class 
who were charged with the planning of this all 
important evening, it was a reward for many 
months of contemplation and organization. The 
success of the Ring Dance meant the happy com- 
pletion of an arduous task. Jack Udebrock and 
his committee finished their work with the knowl- 
edge that all who had given their talents to the 
1959 Ring Dance had earned their moment of 
pride as they first wore their golden orb.

reception committee 

The purpose of the Reception Committee was to 
act as host to visiting athletic teams. Each battal- 
ion had a group of men who volunteered for the 
Committee. From this group three hosts were as- 
signed to each team to answer all the visitors' ques- 
tions about the Naval Academy and to see that 
they arrived at their events and meals on time. 
Those volunteers selected for the committee found 
themselves fortunate in their opportunity to 
spread good will between the Academy and the 
athletes of other schools.

brigade 

hop committee 

The Brigade Hop Committee consisted of all the 
class committees combined under the Chairman. 
The combined committee sponsored the formal, 
costume, and informal hops. A typical hop required 
planning, decorating, providing for an orchestra, 
inviting receiving ladies and hostesses, providing 
for refreshments and programs and other duties 
which made those evenings so very enjoyable. 







brigade 
executive committee 

The Brigade Executive Committee was the most 
important convening body in the structure of the 
honor concept at the Naval Academy. As we knew 
it, the committee was made up of nine members, 
the First Class President as Chairman, the First 
Class Secretary as Recorder, the Brigade Captain, 
and the six First Class Battalion Representatives. 
To these men fell the heavy responsibility of de- 
ciding whether or not an individual suspected of an 
honor offense was worthy of remaining a member 
of the Brigade.

company representatives 

Company Representatives were elected by mem- 
bers of their class within a company for one year. 
Their primary task concerned matters involving 
the Honor System. The Company Representa- 
tives referred cases to members of the Class Hon- 
or Committee, and it was from these representa- 
tives that members of the Class Honor Committee 
were selected. The Company Representatives also 
were often used to aid in carrying out many class 
activities.

I 959 s "Mr. Roberts!" was a far cry from that un- 
happy experience. The Masqueraders had in the 
two previous years produced "The Caine Mutiny 
Court Martial" and "Stalag 17," and gained a rep- 
utation for performance of professional quality. 
Jim Holds and Bradley Keyes, director and pro- 
ducer of "Mr. Roberts" respectively, presented 
the Brigade with another commendable show. 



masqueraders 

The Masqueraders is the Naval Academy's acting 
troupe, and invariably pleases the Brigade with 
its productions. The Masqueraders had its start 
as a club when a group of midshipmen presented 
a production in an old theater on Duke of Glouces- 
ter Street just before the turn of the century. 
The quality of that show was such that the city of 
Annapolis tore down the theater and erected the 
Presbyterian Church, which stands there today.

When Jim Martin, in the roll of Doc, Dave Hofman, 
playing Mr. Roberts and Roger Ramsey in the role of 
Ensign Pulver first stepped onto the stage in Mahan 
Hall, it was plain to all that the 1959 Masqueraders' 
production of Mr. Roberts was bound to be a tremen- 
dous success. The ease with which these men and the 
rest of the Gast put on the show lent a definite Broad- 
way hint to the performance. The first time in a decade 
that a real, live young lady appeared in a Naval Acad- 
emy play, Miss Louise Kurtz admirably portrayed 
Lieutenant Ann Gerard. Only Jackson Kennedy could 
have relived the part of the Captain. From the "scotch- 
making" scene to the death of Mr. Roberts the audi- 
ence laughed and became filled with emotion the likes 
of which have yet to be duplicated. 





To Pete Abdalla, the President of the Masqueraders, 
goes much of the credit. His leadership has inspired 
such Masqueraders greats as Arsenic and Old Lace and 
the Caine Mutiny Court-Martial . Jim Holds perform- 
ances in Stalag 17 made him the perfect director for 
Mr. Roberts. Midshipmen and Officers alike will long 
remember this years' show.

musical clubs show 

Every year the combined musical clubs of the 
Naval Academy present a musical comedy in 
Mahan Hall. The show is completely written, pro- 
duced, and staged by the midshipmen. Each year 
the show has its birth on summer cruise where a 
group of talented midshipmen combine their ef- 
forts to write the show. Shortly before Christmas 
leave of 1958 auditions were held and rehearsals 
began and lasted until late February when the 
show was presented.

Academy. The stage sets are made by the Stage 
Gang and lighting is provided by the Juice Gang. 
The Make-Up Gang provides make-up services 
while the WRNV staff handles the sound equip- 
ment. All special "props" used are provided by 
the Properties Gang. As can be seen, the final 
product is an all-midshipman show, and one of 
which all midshipmen are proud.

Through the Combined Musical Clubs presented their 
show When in Rome far to late for this staff to be able 
to get actual shots from the show, the preliminary re- 
hearsals of the cast and chorus were an excellent indica- 
tion of another fine group of performers from the Bri- 
gade. With Dan Coughlin, Pat Sullivan and Mo Moran 
taking the parts of Dr. Harold G. Nixon, Charlie Wigg- 
ton and Horace J. Cabbott respectively another audi- 
ence was captivated by good music and unbeatable 
humor. 



Jack Funderburk in the role of the Lord High Priest 
inserted the necessary spark to make the show a great 
hit. Successfully written by Dave Guthrie in the sum- 
mer of '58, both he and Buck Lloyd directed When in 
Rome. The first show to have choreography, Dave Guth- 
rie worked many late hours to make it a success. When 
the chorus sang a few of the thirteen numbers such as 
"Beyond the Call of Duty", "A Tunnell under Rome" 
as well as "The Gods Gift" and "Tragic Magic", it 
was plain that the Musical Clubs Show would rank 
among the all time Naval Academy great shows.

stage gang 

The Stage Gang operated in support of the theatrical produc- 
tions at the Naval Academy. Under the direction of Stage Man- 
ager John Robertson, this group designed and created the scen- 
ery for the Masqueraders, Musical Clubs Show and the Navy 
Relief Show. During the winter the "dungareed nine" could be 
found daily at Mahan Hall hammering, sawing and painting 
the scenery designed by Bob Schultz. Throughout the year 
they were also called upon to assist in staging concerts and 
demonstrations in Mahan Hall. 



luice gang 

The Juice Gang was a small outfit with a long list of accom- 
plishments. The work of this organization could be seen through- 
out the Yard during all seasons. They were the unseen group 
behind the fine lighting effects produced in the various stage 
plays. Before and after stage shows and concerts, they displayed 
another product of their work in the form of an attractive elec- 
trical sign on the front of Mahan Hall. To let the team know 
the Brigade was behind them, they erected a blazing sign on 
the front of Bancroft Hall before every grid contest. 



property gang 



The Property Gang was organized to provide, prepare and ar- 
range for the safekeeping of all properties used in Midshipmen 
theatrical presentations. The members of the Gang had to have 
an intimate knowledge of the play to enable them to have props 
in the correct place at the proper time during the show. Any 
member of the Brigade was eligible to join, but membership 
was limited to ten. A member, while he did not act, was in in- 
timate contact with, and gained a working knowledge of, the 
theater. Through his original interest he soon became acquainted 
with all of the frustrations and joys of presenting a play.

zine staff combined their efforts in producing one of the best series of 
the Logs. The coverage was wide and flexible but slanted toward serv- 
ice life and life at the Academy. Features were created with the mid- 
shipmen in mind. Fiction included the best of humor, mystery and 
personal interest stories while the sports department provided excel- 
lent coverage of the varsity teams and their respective meets.

With '59 at the helm, the Splinter forged 
into the '58-'59 season, and certainly 
proved that a lot can be done with "the 
little mag." Keeping to the idea that the 
Brigade likes to laugh, the emphasis was 
laid primarily on humor, with sports and 
features filling out the magazine each issue. 
Every other Wednesday afternoon, one 
could find the staff down in the Log office, 
wading through the lay-out. Eventually 
the runner was sent out to carry the fruits 
of two weeks' labor to the bus station, 
thence to the printers. It proved to be a 
good year for the Splinter, and the time 
for the yearly parody came all too soon. 
We left the Splinter in good hands, and we 
hoped the Brigade had enjoyed it as much 
as we.

The Naval Officer should be "a gentle- 
man of liberal education," said John Paul 
Jones in his famous disposition, and the 
Fifty-nine Trident Magazine sought to 
help to fulfill this requirement in its seven 
issues. It presented to the Brigade not 
only articles of great professional interest, 
but also poems and fictional selections 
which were unusual in their style and 
depth. Shortly after mid-terms, the Tri- 
dent Society and its magazine sponsored 
the annual professional, literary and 
photographic contest, which served to 
bring forth a considerable amount of 
previously unknown talent and provided 
not only intangible rewards, but financial 
remuneration as well. Whether in the 
field of art, science or literature, the 
Trident Magazine deserved and received 
consistently high praise from the numer- 
ous graduates who each month had it 
sent to the four corners of the earth.

Christmas card 
committee 

Every year a group of "mids" huddle in their rooms 
during the Spring of the year working over their Christ- 
mas cards. They aren't just trying to beat the season's 
rush; these men are planners. On them the Brigade 
places full trust for a Christmas card that fits both the 
Season's spirit and the historic spirit of the Academy. 
Proofs had to be obtained, bids accepted, contracts 
let, midshipmen's and officers' orders determined and 
filled. It was truly a distinctive card. 



photo club 



The purpose of the Photographic Club was to initiate and 
support the interest in photography throughout the Brigade. 
The Club held a cruise contest in the fall, choosing the photo- 
graphs which best captured on film a record of the travel and 
experiences of the midshipmen abroad. Another general sub- 
ject contest was held in conjunction with the Trident Society 
in the spring. Meetings throughout the year featured top- 
notch speakers from the photo world. An annual field trip 
was planned to take in a few of the many photogenic scenes 
in the area. Many of the members were strictly "35 mm men" 
and specialized in composition and subject only. Many others 
took advantage of the two well equipped darkrooms to give 
their products the "personal touch." Avid fan or occasional 
lensman, the midshipman found enjoyment in the Photo 
Club. 



trident society 



The Trident Society was the parent organization to 
seven different groups covering nearly all phases of art 
and literature at the Naval Academy. These groups 
included The Trident Magazine, the Trident Calendar, 
Reef Points, the Photo Club, the Christmas Card Com- 
mittee, the Art and Printing Club and the Regimental 
Libraries. The Society coordinated the efforts and the 
funds of the different organizations under it and each 
knew that it had the support of the other six in attempt- 
ing to initiate any new program.

of Plebes. It is designed to publish policy for these 
men. Reef Points, 1958-1959, was a different pub- 
lication than its predecessors. The "Plebe Knowl- 
edge" section was increased and the entire publi- 
cation rewritten with the idea of an ever-progres- 
sive Navy in mind, especially in the "Ships of the 
Navy" and "Naval Aviation" sections. A greater 
working knowledge of the "Code of Conduct for 
members of the Armed Forces" was presented in 
hopes that midshipmen would more clearly un- 
derstand the functions of the military.

trident calendar 

The most popular publication of the Trident So- 
ciety, the Trident Calendar, could be found on ev- 
ery midshipman's desk. Its uses were many, in- 
cluding a place to record grades, the next watch 
or the next date with the femme. By way of mail, 
the Calendar found its way to homes and ships 
throughout the country, to Navy men and to their 
families. The success of the staff in producing the 
Trident Calendar was plainly evident in this out- 
standing publication.

The BAC is synonymous with spirit and morale 
to the Brigade. They cracked the spirit valve early 
and kept it wide open throughout the year. From 
the "cage" in the first wing basement came mess- 
hall posters and "Burma-Shave" signs for Strib- 
ling Walk to give spirit a boost for the big games. 
The BAC gave Tecumseh his bright battle garb 
for contests with Army and planned pep rallies and 
team send-offs to speed our teams to victories. 
With the inspiring and untiring assistance of Cap- 
tain Brown, the BAC Officer-in-Charge, and the 
"anything goes, nothing is impossible" attitude 
of its members, the BAC fired a spirited Brigade 
to an exciting year!

house library committee 

In May," two Third Classmen were elected by each 
company for membership in the House Library Com- 
mittee whose members stood watches in their respective 
Regimental Libraries during their Second and First 
Class years. While on duty, the Committeemen carried 
out regular librarian duties. The organization of the 
Committee itself consisted of the Brigade Chairman 
whose duties included the selection and purchase of new 
books, magazines, and newspapers, and supervision of 
the two Regimental Libraries. The House Library 
Committee insured that the Libraries satisfied all who 
entered them.

art & printing club 

An integral part of the Brigade Activities Committee, 
the Brigade Art and Printing Club served the Brigade 
of Midshipmen in many ways. Composed of men who 
possessed artistic ability and imagination, the Club was 
especially active during the football season. Everything 
from football posters to Burma Shave signs for Stribling 
Walk were produced by the Art and Printing Club. 
Services provided throughout the entire academic year 
included the printing of all hop programs, posters for 
the Musical Club and Masqueraders' productions, all 
posters for Brigade activities, and posters for WRNV 
sponsored professional entertainment. In spite of equip- 
ment handicaps and a limited budget, the Club managed 
to turn out a large volume on time.

newman club 

The Newman Club was the organization which 
assisted all Roman Catholic men in the Brigade 
in the development of their religious, intellectual 
and social character. By providing a well-stocked 
religious library and by sponsoring bi-weekly lec- 
tures by noted Catholic scholars, the Club opened 
the doors to a wealth of knowledge and to the in- 
tellectual aspects of the Roman Catholic Faith 
and Church. The spiritual aspect of the Club was 
manifested by their promotion of the daily rosary 
and also by placing emphasis on daily attendance 
at Mass and frequent reception of the Sacraments. 
Socially, the club sponsored Tea Dances held at 
St. Mary's for the enjoyment of midshipmen of 
all classes and faiths. Four years as a Newman 
Club member under the guidance of the Catholic 
Chaplain, helped round out the life of Roman 
Catholic midshipmen. 



n a c 



The Naval Academy Christian Association was the religious 
organization of Protestant midshipmen dedicated to helping 
each Midshipman understand a little better the part that 
Faith plays in the life of a Military Officer. For the first time 
in many years the Sunday Vesper Meetings of the NACA 
were held in the Chapel. These provided a more religious 
atmosphere for meeting in Christian fellowship. Here men and 



women from all walks of life, guests of the Association, shared 
their talents and experiences with its members. Much credit 
for the success of these meetings must go to the Chaplain for 
his guiding hand and to the Council and company and bat- 
talion representatives who planned and notified the members 
of the Association of its rewarding programs.

chapel choir 



The Chapel Choir led the midshipmen in the mu- 
sical portion of weekly Divine Services. Though 
this was a sober task, the Choir could not be tagged 
a "serious and austere" organization. Their 
most important project was the presentation of 
Handel's Messiah during the Christmas season in 
conjunction with the choir from Hood College. 
Professor Donald C. Gilley, the guiding light, was 
the choirmaster who made possible the beautiful 
music so ably sung by the Chapel Choir.

catholic choir 

The Catholic Choir has progressed very well in the last few 
years. Its 120 members have enjoyed an increased repertoire 
of challenging hymns and anthems which were beautifully 
sung each Sunday morning. For the past few years, the Choir 
has annually sung a High Mass at St. Mathew's Cathedral 
in Washington. This year they were fortunate to have been 
able to combine their voices with the girls' Choir of Trinity 
College in singing a Mass in the Chapel. 



antiphonal choir 

The men of the Antiphonal Choir presented Chapel-goers 
with some of the finest hymns each Sunday morning. Though 
relatively unknown to the Brigade the voices of its members 
rose in a proud and beautiful crescendo, leaving an ecstatic- 
filled audience. Its yearly trip to Washington, D. C, did 
much to increase the public enjoyment for music, Naval 
Academy style.

concert band 

Ed Hill stepped to the podium in 1959, the Con- 
ductor of the Midshipmen's Concert Band and 
wrote the most successful chapter in its six year 
history. Once again during the football season, 
evening meals before the weekly pep rallies were 
enlivened by the Band's "Navy Eight" music and 
spirited marches. 

na-10 

Dixieland, Kenton progressive, rollicking Latin, 
or languid foxtrot; name it and the NA-10 pro- 
vided it in an unforgettable style at many hops 
and smokers throughout the year. Stemming from 
the full band itself were many excellent combos 
which provided entertainment at intermissions 
and were always in demand. 



glee club 




Melodies from sea chanties to love songs and trips charac- 
terized the versatility and vagabond wanderings of the Glee 
Club. Under Prof Gilley's baton, the group performed 
beautifully before many different type audiences — all the way 



from educational associations to nationwide telecasts to the 
annual June Week Concert. Intense rehearsals two nights a 
week made the Glee Club one of the most sought after musical 
groups in the country. 




n-club 

Naval Academy athletes have their own unique organi- 
zation, the varsity N-Club. The only prerequisite to 
membership is winning a varsity letter, but this in it- 
self is a major accomplishment. The N-Club was organ- 
ized to encourage participation in varsity athletics by 
midshipmen, to foster closer relationships between grad- 
uate and undergraduate athletics and to function as an 
association of and for the benefit of all varsity athletes 
of the Naval Academy. It frequently utilized the facil- 
ities of Hubbard Hall to provide recreation, relaxation 
and refreshments for members and their drags. It was 
the sponsor of the annual hop to which the Brigade 
was invited. Its most highly prized social function was 
the N Dance during June Week which only members 
and their ladies could attend. The Academy is proud of 
its fine athletic teams and the men they produce. The 
N-Club rosters, present and past, hold many of these 
familiar names.

goatlceepers 



The Goatlceepers were elected by the football team. 
This highly desirable position is held by First Class- 
men football players unable to play due to an in- 
jury. Roommates and both formidable grid stars 
before fateful injuries, Chuck Corbelli and Tom 
Lukish were awarded the privilege of caring for 
the goat. A highly responsible position, their duties 
required them to be on the field thirty minutes be- 
fore game time in order to prepare Bill for his 



grand entrance. Bill XIV is now eight years of age 
and has been Navy's official mascot for five years. 
For the best part of the year Bill lives at the Na- 
val Academy Dairy Farm where he is fed com- 
mercial goat food. During the football season, 
however, he lives in the pen maintained for him 
on the Academy grounds where he is carefully 
guarded by Marines who stand a 24-hour security 
watch.

sports information 
committee 

Newcomers to the world of extracurricular activi- 
ties at the Naval Academy, the Sports Informa- 
tion Committee began work indispensable to the 
proper publicity of the varsity sports squads. 
Headed by Jacques Haumont, well-known Log 
Editor and soccer player, the Committee prepared 
pre-game editorials for the Brigade telling of the 
particular sporting event to be played on a certain 
day with an account of both teams former successes 
and failures as well as predictions on the meet it- 
self. Post game summaries objectively covered the 
event and a careful and meticulous critique out- 
lined the superior and inferior particulars. Though 
not yet entrenched enough to occupy a legitimate 
lodging, the Sports Information Committee has 
a bright future.

automobile 
committee w00 



This was the fourth year of existence for the Mid- 
shipman Automobile Committee. In this period, 
the Committee developed into a well organized 
and efficient organization. The '59 Committee was 
organized in the spring of 1958 for the purpose of 
obtaining the best possible prices on both new and 
used cars for the members of the graduating class. 
This goal was accomplished by inviting several 
hundred automobile dealers to submit bids on 
their makes of automobiles. These bids were 
opened in December and the Committee then 
recommended to the graduating class one dealer 
for each make of car. 



boat club 

The only remaining link with the "Old Navy," 
the Midshipmen's Boat Club was originally estab- 
lished for the purpose of sail training for midship- 
men. As the oldest club at the Academy, its profes- 
sional aspects have not decreased in value even 
with the advent of nuclear propulsion. Active par- 
ticipants are continually learning the ways of the 
sea and with this a healthy respect for the winds 
and currents which even modern ships cannot dis- 
regard. There is a certain beauty in the foil of a full 
Genoa, a certain majesty in the straining Spin- 
naker, a certain thrill in being at half keel that can 
neither be explained nor duplicated.

HOBBY CLUBS 



stamp club 



The Stamp and Coin Club took on a pleasing 
aspect this year with informal meetings dominat- 
ing the picture. Officer-in-Charge, Lieutenant 
Commander Maginnis gave complete freedom to 
the President, Tony Marangoni, who was partic- 
ularly helpful in the sanctioning of the Club's 
field trip to Baltimore. Never overrun by a packed 
membership, the philatelists were more than hap- 
py to have Joe Taussig, a twelve year old civilian 
from Annapolis, as a guest to assist the Club. This 
year saw more of an exchange of stamps than 
any year previously.

The Model Club proved to be one of the finest outlets 
from the routine life. Each afternoon its members beat 
a hasty retreat to the various rooms in which were 
housed such items as an elaborate model railroad, model 
planes and boats. It was here that Model Club members 
learned of the vast complexities of modern day large 
machines and heavy engines by gaining a working 
knowledge of such prototypes.

The Power Squadron was organized in the spring 
01*1958 under the direct supervision of the Depart- 
ment of Seamanship and Navigation. The Squad- 
ron, a counterpart of the Civilian Power Boat 
Squadron, was designed to give midshipmen the 
opportunity to gain invaluable experience in 
shiphandling, naval tactics, seamanship and nav- 
igation. The boats used by the Power Squadron 
were the boats used by the First and Second 
Classmen in their seamanship afloat drills.

chess club 



With a cry of "checkmate" another infra-Brigade 
competition for the Ditmar Cup was completed. 
This cup competition was only one of the many 
opportunities for the Brigade's chess enthusiasts 
to express themselves. The top ten members were 
chosen to represent the Academy against chess 
clubs of other schools. Invitations were annually 
extended to the Club by several of the Eastern 
colleges, Army, and the Southern Chess Confer- 
ence.

gun club 



The Gun Club was founded for the purpose of 
allowing weapons enthusiasts to keep up with 
their hobby and to allow new-comers to the field 
to develop their interest in gunning. The Mary- 
land Fish and Game Commission planned and 
supervised duck and quail hunts during the fall 
season in which the club participated with great 
success. Other trips included excursions to the 
Marine rifle, pistol, and skeet ranges nearby, and 
members have participated in the Muzzle Loaders 
North-South Shoot each vear. 




political economy club 

Discussing all topics of national economic and po- 
litical concern, the Political Economy Club pro- 
vided an excellent chance for members of the Bri- 
gade to keep in touch with current national affairs. 
The Club, primarily interested in economic affairs 
and their effects on politics, ran seminar and bi- 
weekly meeting programs designed to explain the 
stock market and its operation.

language club 



For those whose desires and ambitions were lin- 
guistic in nature there were the Foreign Language 
Clubs. Guest speakers at the banquets animated 
the study of the language with personal impres- 
sions of the people and the country. The presenta- 
tions and discussions at the monthly club meetings 
enabled direct application of the foreign tongue.

math club 

The purpose of the Math Club was to show the 
midshipmen the more enjoyable and interesting 
side of what was taught in Buildings 133 and 286. 
Meetings were held once every two weeks and 
usually Professors of the Math Department saw to 
it that the lectures were both interesting and in- 
structive. Twice during the year lectures were giv- 
en in Smoke Hall by people connected with such 
projects as Vanguard, IBM and other computing 
centers. 

forensic activity 

Each week night from November to March a 
strange combination of "thus, therefore and fur- 
thermore" was heard throughout Maury Hall. 
The Brigade Debaters were on the fourth deck; 
practicing, researching and arguing. When the 
weekends came, they went forth to do oral battle 
against foes ranging from Vassar to West Point 
and from Maryland to Ottawa.

public relations club 

"Fill out and return to Room 1023 by taps to- 
night." These words, familiar to many in the Bri- 
gade, were the basis of the work of the Public Re- 
lations Committee. Working in conjunction with 
the Sports Publicity Office of the NAAA and the 
PIO Office, the Committee was responsible for the 
coverage and reporting to the Associated Press of 
all sporting events at the Naval Academy. During 
June Week members stood watches in the Admin- 
istration Building to assist newspaper reporters 
and photographers who were at Navy to cover the 
various events. Although much of the work was 
concerned with sports coverage, the Committee 
was also responsible for write-ups sent to home- 
town newspapers concerning outstanding members 
of the Brigade. They were the Press of the Naval 
Academy. 



foreign relations club 

The Foreign Relations Club was one of the most 
active organizations within the Brigade. It pro- 
vided an opportunity for members to study the 
United States in the World Community. The Club 
sponsored the Naval Academy in several nation- 
wide conferences on international affairs. It held 
bi-weekly meetings and monthly banquets with 
guest speakers to broaden the scope of their activ- 
ities and debaters to test the mettle of the Club 
members.

ENGINEERING CLUBS 



rocket 

A career in the Navy of the future will most cer- 
tainly be even more concerned with missiles than 
ever before. With this in mind, several members of 
the Class of 1958 obtained permission from the 
Commandant to form the Rocket Branch of the 
Engineering Clubs. The purpose of the Rocket 
Branch was to provide, for those midshipmen 
interested, an opportunity to advance their knowl- 
edge in the field of rockets and missiles. Chemistry, 
physics, electronics, thermodynamics, fluid mech- 
anics and ordnance are among the much longer 
list of technical subjects covered by a launching 
of just a small rocket.

of the nation's top-flight professionals in the aeronautical 
field spoke to the Club.

challenging field of engineering. It offered 
a distinct opportunity for those interested 
to broaden their knowledge in its field 
within the Naval Academy.

mechanical 

The Mechanical Branch of the Engineering Club 
was organized within the Brigade for the purpose 
of developing increased professional skill. To help 
attain this goal, the American Society of Mechan- 
ical Engineers offered student memberships to in- 
terested midshipmen and cooperated in planning 
club programs. In addition, the ASME coordinat- 
ed the activities of the clubs in colleges through- 
out the nation and sent its professional journal to 
student members.

A unique organization among college activities, 
the Naval Construction Club extended to inter- 
ested midshipmen opportunities of acquaintance- 
ship with the many facets of naval research and 
development connected with ship construction. 
Field trips to naval research centers such as the 
David Taylor Model Basin and the Naval Re- 
search Laboratory augmented the discussions and 
reports of speakers in monthly meetings.

physics 



The Physics Club was an outlet for those members 
of the Brigade who enjoyed science in its more dis- 
tilled form. Most of the Club's projects were in- 
volved with the construction of devices for the 
study of nuclear particles. Through these projects 
and the club's field trips, the members gained a 
broad knowledge of nuclear physics. 




Dave Hand, Secretary-Treasurer; Dick Davis, Vice-Chairman; Al 
Boothe, Chairman. 

automotive 

The Automotive Club came into being at the Acad- 
emy several years ago with the purpose of devel- 
oping ideas fostered by midshipmen interested in 
the various fields of propulsion. These included the 
airplane, automobile, and today, the space satel- 
lites and rockets. This year the Naval Academy 
Automotive Club succeeded in giving midshipmen 
interested in any of these phases of self-propulsion 
an opportunity to channel his interests along a 
more productive line. 



We will all remember WRNV for the excellent 
programs it broadcasted and the fine battle it 
foughtT~for existence. The station was silent for a 
few months but returned to the air with new 
-Studios, a new transmitter and a brand new broad- 
cast format. The best in music, news, and sports 
coverage was the order of the day, every day, 
when we tuned WRNV. The popular music con- 
certs grew out of WRNV's efforts to furnish the 
best in entertainment and presented many famous 
artists in person. Station Manager Dave Green 
and the members of the staff of "Radio Navy" 
worked hard and long to succeed in building a 
valuable station of which the Brigade could be 
quite proud.

At the infant stage of each fall semester one would 
see as he walked around Thompson Stadium in 
the afternoon, several energetic and peppy men, 
yelling, jumping, tumbling, and other "troopla 
gyrations" all of which constitute the daily rou- 
tine practice of the Cheerleaders. Here they pre- 
pared themselves for the gridiron season filled 
with activities, work, and excitement, football 
games, team send offs and pep rallies. Wherever 
the Brigade goes to support Navy's great football 
team, there you'll find the cheerleaders in front

ful planning and many hours of tedious rehearsal. 
The Corps found that hard work payed off and was 
chosen the third best collegiate marching outfit in 
the country during '$6-5*]. Not satisfied with 
being third, '59 spent most of Second Class year 
rewriting all music in preparation for the big push

1959 
lucky bag 




Dave Sullivan 
Editor-in-Chief 

October of Youngster year saw the birth of the 
1959 Lucky Bag with the elections of the Editor- 
in-Chief and the Business Manager. With the 
coming of Second Class year, it was not uncom- 
mon to hear the booming voice of Dave Sullivan 
from the depths of the First Wing Basement. From 
the year-long task of compiling and correcting bi- 
ographies to determining the photographer, print- 
er, cover manufacturer and advertising manager, 
the staff began the arduous task of preparing the 
layout for the book. Discussions often ran hot be- 
tween Art Editor Bill Richardson and Sullivan 
over what should be drawn and what should be 
photographed. The Staff moved into the First 
Class Lucky Bag Office after their return from 
leave in August and began the actual production 
of the book. The problems which arose were 
enough to keep the entire staff awake all night, but 
the hard work of Tom Karpick, who edited the 
Activity Section and undertook the job of Layout 
Editor as well, ironed out many of the difficulties. 
The Office was like a library, open every afternoon 
of the Week. For the fine photographic work there 
was no one to thank but Photographic Editor Bob 
Hydinger who set forth every afternoon in quest 
of bigger and better pictures. Between his foot- 
ball playing and work as Brigade Captain, Pete 
Van Nort staggered wearily down to the Office to 
edit the numerous pages of the Sports Section. 
Managing Editor Jim Martin and Don Babcock 
were always on hand to assist Sullivan and to qui- 
etly put forth maximum effort in assuring that all 
copy and pictures were present and that the copy 
was well written. Four Year Editors Bob Currie 
and Steve Snyder had the difficult tasks of com- 
piling the many pictures taken over the course of 
our years at Navy and writing the copy therein.

in-Charge Captain Brown, very happy. Photo- 
graphic Manager Dick Engel, one of the most tal- 
ented men on the business staff kept coordination 
between the photographers and those to be pho- 
tographed in a state of near perfection. The never- 
ending job of Advertising Manager was placed 
firmly in the lap of another outstanding "finan-

Officer-in-Charge, Captain Brown, carefully scrutinizes some pictures of 
questionable content before giving the final seal of approval. 



Usually a fairly simple and uniform task in editing 
the Lucky Bag is the Biography Section, but the 
complexities involved in its division by States this 
year made it a job two years in the completion and 
then only because of the diligence of Biography 
Editor Bill Corcoran who was charged with the 
collection and compiling of the biographies. It is 
estimated that Pres Pollock logged over 80 hours 
in the painting of the Forrestal, which appears on 
pages 1 and 3. Between Bill Richardson and Pol- 
lock over 200 hours were spent in the drawing of 
the major division and subdivision pages. Rarely 
an afternoon went by when Dave Sullivan did not 
have his Plebes banging away at the typewriters 
or that Tom Karpick was without his helpers to 
work the slipstick in cropping pictures. "No, you 
can't spend one more nickel, Sullivan", seemed to 
be Peterson's byline as the Editor went after more 
and more pages of color, causing the bank account 
to slowly be drained. Only the patience of Captain 
Brown kept us in the black, for it was he who 
helped us out of the mud when the going was tough 
and backed us up when we were in trouble. 
Though the experts have yet to examine it, the 
Staff left the Office in June with a feeling that this 
was THE Lucky Bag. 



Pres Pollock's masterpiece.

baseball 



Baseball fans who made the long trip over to Law- 
rence Field in the Spring of '59 were treated to 
one of the best Navy nines seen in recent years. 
With a power packed lineup to complement an 
excellent pitching staff, the Blue and Gold took 
each opponent in stride and "came home with the 
Bacon" consistently.

Lefty Chuck Davis and Gerry Hill were the 
mainstays of the mound corps and were backed 
by the excellent relief hurling of Big Fred Ander- 
son. Behind the plate football hero Joe Ballino 
proved he was a fine handler of pitchers, as well 
as a dangerous hitter. Clean-up hitter Mike Wel- 
len finished out his three year career in fine style, 
providing Navy with an excellent first sacker who 
stopped anything that came his way. The key-

Bob Stiedle produced many timely hits along with 
many fielding gems that made Navy strong up 
the middle. Over at third base, Jack Hawthorne 
hit and fielded in fine style as did Dick Brown in 
left field. Speedster "Arky" Vaughn patrolled 
centerfield to save the day many times and his 
power at the plate was a tremendous asset to the 
team. In right field was stationed the team's lead- 
ing hitter Fred Marsh whose base knocks always 
were there at the most opportune time. The abil- 
ities of these experienced ball players, along with 
the ever present teamwork, enabled Navy to 
complete one of its most successful seasons in 
many years climaxed by a twelve inning victory 
over West Point.

crew 





Navy's crew, under the venerable dean of Amer- 
ican rowing coaches, Rusty Callow, was certain 
to be an improved team this year. The varsity 
shell that finished second in last year's Nationals 
lost only one man to graduation and Grant 
Wright has filled that spot ably. Sal Perry, Navy's 
outstanding stroke, led an experienced crew that 
brought home many victories this year. The var- 
sity shell consisted of Sal Perry at stroke, Frank 
Kay at 7, Guy Curtis at 6, Keith Christensen at 
5, Grant Wright at 4, John Pechauer at 3, Skip 
Sweetsen at 2, and Mark Moore in the bow. The 
shell was ably directed by Burt Johnson from the 
coxswain's seat. 




Mb 

Mm 






The J.V. shell, stroked by Mike Freseder and 
coxswained by Jim Beam, has been improving 
steadily and pushed the varsity in all the time 
trials. The squad was in good condition for their 
opening race, thanks to unusually good weather 
during the autumn and early spring. Coach Cal- 
low had a slight illness last winter, but returned 
in time to take the crews out on the water in Feb- 
ruary. Navy had every right to expect to sweep 
the lake at Syracuse; Coach Callow and his squad 
would be satisfied with nothing less than a Na- 
tional Championship. 





150 pound crew 





Navy's 150 pound crew had a very suc- 
cessful se.ason with the highlight coming 
in the form of a three-boat win over 
George Washington University. The team 
was led by Captain John Turner in the 
number two spot in the boat with the re- 
maining seats covered by John Lovejoy 
at stroke, Jud Kinch in 7, Pete Gorham 
at 6, Mike McCullough in 5, John Cla- 
man in 4, Rusty Hays in 3, Bill Mc- 
Gowen in the bow and signals called by 
Coxswain Neal Parker.

golf 




The Golf Team had a good season which ended 
with a victory over Army on the West Point 
links. The most consistent man on the squad was 
none other than team Captain Gibson Smith. 
This likeable young man with an even temper- 
ament did much to keep his teammates on an 
even Keel. Hank Mauz, Mike Hornsby, Bob 
Gridley and Herndon Oliver teamed up with 
Smith to form the nucleus of the team. On the 
basis of their weekly qualifying scores Mike 
Moynahan, Mike Madden, "Dusty" Rhodes, 
Mike Moore and Bill Catlett moved in and out of 
the line-up. Gib Smith ended his golfing days at 
Navy on a distinguishing note by qualifying for 
the Eastern Intercollegiate finals. Through the 
expert guidance of Coach Bob Williams and many 
long hours on the fairways the boys turned in a 
very creditable performance.

lacrosse 



A* 




Nineteen-Fifty nine saw a change in the coaching staff 
when Dinty Moore retired and Bill Bilderback stepped 
up to assume the duties of head mentor. Ably assisted 
by Lt. Carrington the twosome combined to produce a 
fine team. Mickey Reeves was in the goal for the Tars 
while Jim Murphy, Jim Fiene and Bob Martin formed 
the outer defense perimeter. All-American Carl Ripple- 
meyer led the Midfielders and teamed up with Dick 
Pariseau and Jack Prudhomme to form as tough a line 
as could be found in the East. Capt. Ed Gibbons, Gene 
Fitzpatrick and Al Krulish were always ready to step 
in and do their share when the front-runners needed a 
rest. The Attack was solid with Barry Byrne, Russ 
Whipps and Hod Wells carrying the load. This trio was 
spelled by Roman, Chiles and Dunne when a rest was 
in need. The team's outstanding game was against John 
Hopkins, who was upended 13-11, thereby ending a 23 
game winning streak for the Blue Jays. The team typi- 
fied the Navy Spirit and hustle was their trademark.

dinghy sailing 



Navy's varsity sailing squad, captained by George 
Lehmberg, competed in twelve regattas involving the 
entire team and one monotype race. Throughout the 
season the sailors were called upon to compete in widely 
varying weather and seas; from the calm Severn to the 
rough shores as Kings Point. The masters of the dinghy 
sailed against such teams as Princeton, Colgate, Penn- 
sylvania and West Point. For every regatta Trux Um- 
sted and Bill Cain did much to increase the spirit of the 
entire team. Coach Weymouth and Lieutenant Wil- 
liam's guidance hands and patience were prime factors 
in the winning of each race. 








track 





This year the track team, hampered by injuries, proved that it could 
still go against the best of competition. They were led in the 880 by 
the team captain, Fred March. Jim Dunn, came into his own in the 
440 and turned in several winning performances against stiff compet- 
itors. These men in the middle distance have received help from Don 
Darrow and Johnny Dettbarn, who were the two who joined in the 
best mile relay team Navy has had in several years. In the one mile 
run, a Youngster, Bob Dunkle, was the "big" boy, running below 
4:20 in several races. The two mile run was strong with Navy's best 
two miler ever, Bob Kunkle, turning in great jobs. The big two, Art 
Smith and George Van Houten, were joined by Rod Watterson, to 
give us our punch in the Sprints. Jim Neal led in the high hurdles, 
while in the low hurdles, Randy McHenry was our top man. Low 
Hilder broke the high jump record in nearly every meet. In the pole 
vault, Bob McMichael, Bob Beaton, and Buddy Maxeon, cleared 13' 
regularly. The Navy team had a fairly good year, but the. success of 
the season rested in the all important Army match which ended in 
another Navy victory.

tennis 



'59 was a "building year" for the Navy tennis team. 
With '58's top man unable to play because of a knee 
injury, Navy was left with one first classman, Marv 
Osburn, team captain, in the starting lineup. The lad- 
der included Dave Haughton at number one, followed 
by Marv Osburn, Nick Temple, Bill Moore, Mike 
Willsey, and Rich Fluegel. In doubles, Haughton and 
Moore were our top team. The team went to Pensacola 
over Spring Leave, and the three days of practice and 
matches in the warm weather added a polish to its 
game which proved valuable later in the close matches. 
The season started shakily against strong Ivy League 
teams, but the turning point of the season was the Co- 
lumbia match. Having lost to them previously by 5 to 
4 in a preseason match, the blue and gold won the 



scheduled match by 5 to 4. The new tennis coach, Bill 
Bos, was the primary influence that brought this team 
on to a successful season. His new ideas and his guid- 
ance on the courts were invaluable. All learned many 
lessons in matches against him. Another man who 
helped greatly was Captain Leftwich, who could be seen 
on the courts almost every day. Our officer representa- 
tive, Captain Rixey, was a welcome member of the team 
both on and off the court. Throughout the season, as 
with every Navy team, thoughts have been focused on 
the Army match as Army had one of their most for- 
midable teams in recent years. The task of extending 
our nine year mastery over Army was our foremost 
goal, as it will always be. BEAT ARMY!

No More Rivers! The first exuberant event in June Week, the time 
of the turning of tables, the chance for Officers and Professors to see 
themselves as Midshipmen have seen them during the past four years. 
Here the members of the First Class are allowed a final indulgence in 
the happy irresponsibility of the Midshipmen, for behind the humor 
in running our seniors is the realization that in a few, numbered days 
we, unable to beat them, will have joined them. The first step in the. 
relinquishing of our Midshipman position is the Changing of the 
Watch. Members of the present Second Class, soon to shoulder the 
burden of leadership of the Brigade of Midshipmen, assume the 
watch-standing duties of the Graduating Class. June Week is a time 
of looking forward much more than of looking backward. Each event, 
nearly every action which reminds the First Class of days behind 
points even more strongly to days ahead. The painting of the old, 
familiar cruise box which has held our precious belongings through 
many a cruise now will carry them to that rapidly nearing first duty 
station. The sight of our own automobiles parked in the yard returns

Wednesday 27 may 





to mind many a dream of the day symbolic of our emergence from the 
cocoon, the day we'd rate owning and driving our cars. The fact of 
ownership is a new one to us, but only one of the many responsibilities 
of the new life to which we have all looked forward. Combining recre- 
ation and training on the water is possible and popular at the Naval 
Academy, and the romance of the water is especially inviting during 
June Week. The large fleet of small and medium sailing craft of the 
Academy, which serves to train Navy's inter-collegiate and ocean 
racing teams during the academic year is available to Midshipmen, 
their ladies, and families during the golden week, and billowing jen- 
nies and green water on the deck are the order of the day. Popular, 
too, are the YP's, power boats used for the practice of the first and 
second classes in shiphandling. These versatile craft allow the officer- 
aspirant to give to his lady and parents an idea both of the training he 
has had and the job he will fill aboard his ship. Built to handle in a 
manner similar to ships of the line, they give the Midshipman the 
experience of the command for which he is being trained.

Sunday 31 may 




On Sunday of June Week is 
the Baccalaureate, the quiet 
hours which bring to the 
minds of all an understand- 
ing of the depth of the re- 
sponsibilities we have so 
long aspired to assume. We 
remember the inspiration of 
each previous Sunday in 
the Chapel, whose silent 
strength and lovely stained 
glass have taught us mute 
lessons these four years. 
The words of Admiral Ar- 
leigh Burke, Chief of Naval 
Operation, on this last Sun- 
day morning were addi- 
tional channel markers in 
the uncertain waters ahead. 





Radio station WRNV, the Voice of Navy, "Color Ra- 
dio" for the Brigade, and the Brigade's own musical 
clubs provide through the year a number of superior 
musical entertainments. The Naval Academy Glee 
Club, the far ranging and nationally famous group of 
singing Midshipmen, is one of the favorite musical 
clubs in the Brigade, and its members lift their hearts, 
and those of the many guests in the yard, one final time 
on the last Sunday evening. 



Sponsored by WRNV, many of the outstanding pop- 
ular music personalities visit the Naval Academy each 
year. Climaxing a year which has seen the Kingston 
Trio and Joni James play to a filled Field House, the 
Four Lads, Steve Laurence, and Ralph Marterie pro- 
vided a kind of light refreshment most pleasing to the 
group which attended.

monday 1 June 




The life of a Midshipman is one of infinite variety, one of uncounted areas in which he may dem- 
onstrate his ability. Those who excel in these many callings receive their awards and commenda- 
tions on Monday of June Week, awards as varied as the accomplishments they represent. Those 
outstanding in professional skills were the proud recipients of swords, binoculars, or fire-arms; 
men outstanding in academic fields received similar awards. Navy's finest athletes received the 
N and blanket prizes. Not only the prize winners, but the whole class as well is justifiably proud 
at the conclusion of this ceremony, for the awards represent not only the rewards for the successful 
tasks behind, but those which will accrue daily to each of us from the knowledge of a service un- 
compromisingly performed. 




Following the Awards Cere- 
mony and Awards Parade, 
the Superintendent holds a 
garden party for the mem- 
bers of the graduating class, 
their ladies, and parents. It 
is the first time many of the 
families will have met the 
man who has so closely con- 
trolled the lives of their 
midshipmen. The cool gar- 
den and relaxing music of 
the U.S. Naval Academy 
Chief's Band provide a wel- 
come respite to all from the 
fast schedule of June Week, 
a moment to pause in the 
middle of the bridge from 
the old life to the new.

Of all young ladies, the Color Girl is perhaps the most traditionally beautiful and most univer- 
sally envied. The Color Parade the Company which has had the most outstanding record during 
the previous year is granted the privilege of carrying the National Ensign and Naval Academy 
Color. The lovely lady is the center of all attention as she performs this ceremony and presents 
to the Commander of the Company a kiss of congratulation. 



The Farewell Ball is the 
last hop, the parting of 
friends and classmates. It is 
the moment when the in- 
evitable nostalgia is over- 
whelming, the realization 
of so much left forever un- 
done is greatest. Never be- 
fore was the music so sweet, 
the girl so lovely, nor the 
hop so short. It is all the 
hops, all the June Weeks 
compressed into one mo- 
ment; truly the end of the 
social way of life of four 
years. But before liberty is 
up it is the Day of Grad- 
uation!

Three June 1959. The final hour, so filled with lasts and firsts, begins. Pomp and Circumstance. 
We file into the field house, caps under our arms, row by row, to our seats. We remain standing, 
then sit as a man, as one this last time. We look guardedly for our families. Soon the speaker is 
through, the invocation given and the waited moment — "to these we leave behind."

Graduation happily past, one ceremony yet remains be- 
fore the new officer may assume all the dignity of his 
new rank. His First Class Shoulderboards left far be- 
hind, the new Ensign must find his lady who carries the 
new thick gold stripe of an Officer, and the Marine 
Corps, Army and Air Force graduates hasten to don 
their new uniforms in order that their similar ceremony 
may take place. We have all received salutes before, 
but this one — the first one we may return as officers, 
will always have a very special significance. 





For many the step into "life outside" is not completed 
by donning the device of an officer, and as a result the 
Chapel sees many June Brides leave with their new 
husbands. But, married or single, Navy or sister serv- 
ice, the drive out Gate Three is a marked contrast to 
the walk in we all took four years ago. It is a long life 
over, and each event in June Week has reminded us not 
only of the days behind, but of the many years ahead 
with taxes, frustrations, and joys all their own. As mid- 
shipmen we were given the capacity for development in 
mind and character. As officers the responsibilities of 
citizenship and government are truly ours. 




One of the most striking features of the education 
received at the Naval Academy is the variety of 
occupations for which it prepares the undergrad- 
uate. A familiar sight on graduation day is the 
combination of Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and 
Air Force Uniforms which appear on the new of- 
ficers. Each wears his uniform proudly, each de- 
termined to perform in such a manner that he 
and the Academy may be proud of his work what- 
ever the service in which he performs it. 




all's well that 



ends well

a history of the lucky bag 1894-1959 



"We beg to explain to the uninitiated that among sea- 
faring folks a 'Lucky Bag' is the receptacle into which 
'Jimmy Legs' gather the odds and ends gathered about 
the decks. The miscellaneous character of the contents 
of this volume suggested the name." With these words 
the Class of 1894 brought into being the first yearbook 
of the United States Naval Academy. The quotation 
in this first edition on the first page was preceded by an 
introductory page entitled "Apology" in which the 
Board of Editors told of the origination of the book — 
that it was designed to be a volume of poetry written 
by members of the class but later converted, in desper- 
ation, into a class annual. They clearly acknowledged 
the imperfections and shortcomings of the book. 

The preface in the 1895 Lucky Bag explained that be- 
cause the 1894 book was so crude, the Class of '95 was 
given a warning that their book would be the last of 
the Naval Academy annuals if it was not more chari- 
table to the officers and men in the Class of 1895. The 
crudeness of the 1894 edition becomes apparent when 
a very few pages are examined. On one of the first 
pages in the book was inscribed on a tombstone the 
following epitaph: "A bilger of the Class of '94. Here 
lie the remains of a Naval Cadet in the U. S. Navy. 
After a valiant struggle with a semi-annual exam from 
the effects of which he never recovered, he departed 
this life on the 13th day of February in the year of our 
Lord 1893. Erected in loving memory by the Academic 
Board." Another unkind excerpt from this same book 
which contributed to the near downfall of the Lucky 
Bag came in the form of a table containing the names 
of the men in the class and a list of their interests. One 
such man had the following after his name: "Politics — 
Republican, Alias — Rastus or Nigger, Spare time spent 
in — Trying to look like white folks, Idea of perfection — 
White Folks, Would like to be when he graduates — 
Minister to Hayte, Favorite drink — Ink." 

From 1894 to 1920, the Lucky Bags had various sizes 
which, in this day, would be considered quite odd. Until 
1901 they were quite uniform, i.e. the height was greater 
than the width but usually of smaller dimensions in 
the neighborhood of 7X9 inches. The 1902 book was 
published as a 10X7^ size, reversing the precedence 
and having a size not unlike that of a scrapbook. It was 
not until 1921 that the first book was printed of size 
9X12, called standard in today's yearbooks. This size 
book was used without interruption until 1941 when a 
book of size 11X14 came out. This size was commonly 



used throughout the 1940's until 1949 when that years' 
staff reverted to the accepted 9X12. This was unbroken 
until the Class of 1959 produced one of size 10X13. 
The 11X14 size, predominant in the 40's was too large 
to be a practical yearbook although the staffs of these 
books used the size to their best advantage in 
reproducing photographs. 

Not surprising is the fact that as the years passed the 
number of pages in each book showed an increase, 
usually coming in changes over a ten year period. The 
1894 Lucky Bag had but 152 pages whereas the 1958 
book reached a maximum of 624 pages. These figures 
are exclusive of the advertising section which varied 
from a very few pages in 1894 to nearly 100 in the 
1950's. Until 1 91 9, no Lucky Bag ever exceeded 500 
pages, the average being in the 300's until the 1920 
book when one of 512 pages was produced. Every year 
thereafter the book averaged approximately 500 pages 
except during the 1940's when the usual number of 
pages was in the mid or low 400's. This, however, was 
due to the fact that the size of the books was increased 
to 11X14, thereby requiring fewer number of pages 
per book. 

One of the most interesting factors of the Lucky Bags 
has been the dedications of the various books. Forty 
consecutive editions beginning with the first had a 
dedication to some person or some ideal. With the 
exception of one Lucky Bag, every book up to 1920 
was dedicated to a person. Usually it was a Naval 
Academy Officer, often an instructor or professor in 
the academic departments, and sometimes to the Super- 
intendent. The Class of 1898 dedicated their book to 
the President — Theodore Roosevelt, although he was 
at the time the Secretary of the Navy. This was the 
only Lucky Bag dedicated to a President. During this 
era only the f8(?i Lucky Bag was not dedicated to a 
person and this was replaced by one to "Our Alma 
Mater." The Class of 1921 initiated the practice of 
dedicating the book to an abstract ideal and this came 
in the name of the "Men Who Gave Their Lives in the 
Great World War." Though the idea of the dedications 
to personages never lost popularity, the abstract dedi- 
cation gradually became more and more common. The 
1924 Lucky Bag was dedicated to "Our Mothers." The 
dedication page contained the following passage: " 'All 
that I am and all that I ever hope to he, I owe to my 
Mother' — 'Abraham Lincoln'." The editors followed 
this up with their own words: "Behind each one of us 



483 



is an influence stronger than patriotism, stronger than 
duty, stronger than honor, it is the stuff of which 
patriotism and duty and honor are made. It is the influ- 
ence of our mothers. These pages are set apart to honor 
them. The Lucky Bag is lovingly dedicated to our 
mothers." This was truly a marked difference in dedi- 
cations to date in the Lucky Bags, but it was also quite 
a wonderful and touching change and the Class of 192.9 
used the same dedication. The Class of 1926 went far 
into the realm of the abstract in their dedication to 
the "Men Who Gave Their All That Man's Conquest 
of Air May Go Forward." The Class of 193 1 used their 
dedication to honor John Paul Jones and this played 
the dual role of a dedication and a theme about which 
the entire book evolved. The Class of 1935 was the first 
to have no dedication at all. Dedications became 
notably fewer and fewer in the 1940's and almost 
totally absent in the 1950's. The reason for this appears 
to be due to the fact that editors were more interested 
in using the opening pages, formerly the traditional 
spot saved for the dedication, for a more dramatic and 
colorful introduction to the book. 

Each class generally had its own way of using and 
arranging various sections. The Lucky Bag, as every 
other college yearbook, has a section devoted to the 
seniors or first class in the case of the Naval Academy, 
a sports section, a section in which the Class's four 
years are condensed into pictures and copy recalling 
memorable events, and an activities section in which the 
extracurricular activities are portrayed and explained 
and pictures of the graduating class members in each 
activity are shown. Furthermore, it usually has a sec- 
tion in which either pictures or drawings of buildings 
and statues in the Yard are shown. The "Chain of 
Command," class striper organization and underclass 
sections generally round out a Lucky Bag. These sec- 
tions have not always been plainly visible, that is 
notably separated, and have sometimes been inter- 
mingled. This usually results when a class uses a theme 
such as a "Tour of the Yard." 

Until the end of the first decade of the twentieth cen- 
tury the Lucky Bags consisted primarily of poetry. The 
collection which members of the class had written and 
gathered was the sole reason for the first Lucky Bag. 
In these first books there were contained poetry dealing 
with every phase of Academy life from the academics 
to sports and cruises. These early editions had nearly 
no photographs at all, a few drawings and much copy. 
The sports section and the "Class History" were almost 
exclusively copy. The "Class History" was an essay 
type summary of the graduating class's four years and 
a forerunner to the modern day four years section. 
Pictures were rare and copy was long and drawn out. 
All these books were outstanding in satire but often 
outwardly insulted class members and, all too often, 
officers. But with all the satire and directed remarks, 
these first Lucky Bags were masterpieces of humor. 
The 1900 Lucky Bag, for example, upon leaving forty 



of their seventy pages blank declared they did so be- 
cause "these are the best part of the book." The 1900 
Lucky Bag was also the first book to carry pictures of 
the first class combined with a short fifty to seventy- 
five word biography. No class since has failed to adhere 
to this procedure. 

The 1911 Lucky Bag was by far the most outstanding 
book published to that date. A very orderly section 
devoted to the academic departments opened the book. 
The biography section contained one biography per 
page. The quotations and poetry which hithertofore 
accompanied the biography section were omitted and 
the background of the page was printed in a beautiful 
pale green with white line etchings of fish and the roll 
of the sea. The cruise section and the sports section 
were so well done and the photography so good that 
succeeding classes for many years used the entire book 
as a model. 

The second decade of the century saw the Lucky Bag 
begin using more and more photographs and less copy. 
It further started the precedence of bringing the actual 
operations of the Navy into the book. This was done 
by showing ships and shore stations and explaining, 
pictorially and written, what part the midshipmen 
played in these while on summer cruises. This was in 
opposition to the earlier books whose main theme 
evolved almost totally about life at the Naval Academy. 
In this era battleships and cruisers were consistently 
highlighted, showing their growing importance in the 
Navy at this time. 

With the 191 '5 Lucky Bag, the extracurricular activities 
began to take on a definite and exclusive portion of the 
book. This was the first year the Log came into being 
and it, along with other activities, had group shots of 
members and a descriptive essay on the functions of 
the club or organization. In this same year, the first 
picture of the Farewell Ball was printed. 

Every Lucky Bag, with the exception of the 191 5 edi- 
tion, contained a striper section. At first this was done 
by just printing the names and titles of the midship- 
men officers (although at the time they were called 
cadet officers). After 1903, however, each book had 
pictures of company staffs. It was not until the advent 
of the regimental and battalion staffs in 1916 that the 
striper section approached the modern day arrange- 
ment of an orderly chain of command section within the 
Brigade Organization. 

It was the 1916 book also in which the first four year 
section appeared. Each year thereafter this section 
told — sometimes in pictures alone, but rarely without 
copy — the life of the graduating class from their first 
days as Plebes through cruises to graduation. The 191 6 
book further subdivided this section into years, heading 
each with "Joe Gish, Plebe"; "Joe Gish, Youngster" 
and so forth. This fictitious character has ever since 



484 



been the individual picked in the telling of a story of a 
particular midshipman whom it is intended to keep 
anonymous. 

From 1 9 14 until 191 8 little mention was made of World 
War I in the Lucky Bags. This points out the fact that 
no great American naval battles were then being fought. 
This is in striking contrast to the great emphasis 
placed on the heroic deeds of Dewey at Manila Bay a 
few years earlier and its reflection in the Lucky Bags 
of previous years. But a sense of longing to have been 
able to participate in that great war on the part of the 
midshipmen became apparent in the 1920 Lucky Bag. 
This book attempted to portray life as the midshipmen 
of that class lived it while World War I was going on — 
telling how they waited their chance to serve and show- 
ing their anxiety to be participating. A special section 
was also set aside in this book entitled "When the Fleet 
Came Home." This was a series of pages devoted to the 
return of the ships which carried the hundreds of thou- 
sands of troops home from Europe at the end of the war. 

As a result of the war and the subsequent early gradu- 
ation of the Class of 191 8, only three classes remained 
in the Naval Academy at any one time until 1921. The 
administration took the top half of the Class of 1921, 
graduated them early and designated them the Class 
of 1921-A. The lower half then constituted 1921-B. As 
a result, there were two separate biography sections in 
the lone book published this year. A second staff had to 
be ushered in to complete the book. This method was 
quite different than that used by the Class of 1948 which 
was divided into 1948-A and 1948-B as a result of the 
Second World War. There were two different books 
printed by these classes. 

The beginning of the truly modern look in Lucky Bags 
began with the infamous 1922 edition. This book was 
the first to have the "yearbook look" from which few 
colleges have departed since. Its 9X12 size, coupled 
with the one-hundred pound weight enamel paper and 
the orderly arrangement of sections, show why it be- 
came standard. No Lucky Bag ever before or ever since, 
however, has left such distaste as has the 1922 book. 
It was in this edition in which a graduating midshipman 
was placed on a perforated page by himself, with his 
biography entitled "an autobiography" and extremely 
unkind statements written about the man. The reason 
for this was due to a rivalry between the editor of the 
book who stood number one in the class and the man in 
question who stood number two. 

The Lucky Bags of the i92o's again showed an upsurge 
of intense interest in basing themes on and using large 
colorful pictures of, big ships. But even more so in this 
era was the increasing attention given to aeronautics. 
The 1923 Lucky Bag began this and the 1926 book dedi- 
cated their book to man's conquest of air. This staff 
further depicted the tragic story of the zeppelin 
"Shenandoah." 



Considered the best works of art in any Lucky Bag and 
painted by a graduating midshipman were those printed 
in the 1926 Lucky Bag. On the pages used to divide the 
various sections were presented a sequence of ships. 
The "Book One" divider was entitled the "Age of 
Oars" and showed a galley underway with oars mounted. 
The book continued throughout with action reproduc- 
tions of these paintings and were called, in order, "The 
Age of Oars and Sail," "The Age of Sail," "The Age 
of Sail and Steam," and finally "The Age of Steam." 
These paintings hang today in the Naval Academy. 

From 1927 until 1936, the Lucky Bags were not unlike 
in their style. They were all the standard 9X12 and 
averaged 500 pages each. They were collectively unique, 
however, in their dedications. Nearly all were abstract 
themes devoted to such things as "Those Men of our 
Navy who are silhouetted against the colorful back- 
ground of history . . .," "The Service" and "Navy's 
Brood Aloft . . ." The Class of 1928's unique "Spirit of 
Self Sacrifice" highlighted this era of dedications. It 
contained in full the following passage: 

The mission fulfilled . . . escape impossible . . . the 
submarine 's crew is making the last supreme sacrifice 
. . . of self. 

This . . . the Spirit of Self Sacrifice . . . has inspired 
countless men to give their all that Our Navy might 
carry on its unending tasks. Never questioning or hesi- 
tating, they have made the great paymerit to the grim 
god of duty, that today we might find the service replete 
with glorious tradition. 

We dedicate our book to this spirit . . . intangible . . . 
yet powerfully real . . . The Spirit of Self Sacrifice. 
One of the strangest dedications also occurred in this 
era. It was one devoted to Henry C. Nields, a relatively 
unimportant figure in history — one of Farragut's very 
junior officers at Mobile Bay. 

With the 1937 Lucky Bag came the first use of the four 
color process of printing. Books hithertofore had used 
color but they were all portraits. The true colors of 
red, black, green and yellow appeared superimposed in 
this book in the form of a picture of Superintendent 
Rear Admiral David Foote Sellers USN, to whom the 
book was dedicated. A four color process picture of a 
Brigade formation also appeared in this book. The 
1938 Lucky Bag further showed good usage of the four 
color process and was able to increase the number of 
pages of color especially in the opening section which 
showed views of the various buildings in the Yard. This 
book was quite unique in that the four year section con- 
tained many photographs and no copy whatsoever. It 
was purely a story of pictures and a clearly defined story 
it was. In this section was contained a picture of Carvel 
Hall ablaze, a situation in which the midshipmen were 
called upon to help extinguish the blaze. For their 
work they were granted the privilege of smoking in 
their rooms, which until then was a serious breach of 
regulations which called for a long confinement aboard 
the Rein a Mercedes.

With the coming of the 1940's, Lucky Bags began tak- 
ing on an interesting aspect as regards the biography 
section. Until this time biographies took up the major 
portion of the book and were all too often a very dull 
and repetitious section of the book. The graduating 
midshipmen were generally divided alphabetically by 
battalions or with two roommates on a single page, 
accompanied by approximately a 100 word biography 
along with a baby or informal candid photograph of 
each man. All the books had some kind of a back- 
ground which was usually the same for each biography 
page in that particular book. The 1940 Lucky Bag, 
however, divided their book and the biography section 
as well into the following parts: "From the North 
'Sagacity', from the South 'Courage', from the South 
West 'Audacity', from the Middle West 'Resolution', 
from the Far West 'Stamina'." This era also saw an 
increase in size of the pictures in the biography section 
to a very (almost too) large 3X4^ inches. 

The 1 941 and 1942 books further attempted to rid the 
biography section of its dullness by having one-third 
of the class dressed in blue service, another third in 
white service and the remaining third in a uniform 
consisting of white coats, shoulder marks, white shirt 
and bow tie. For the first time the midshipmen did not 
appear in a common uniform. 

As was mentioned earlier, all the staffs of the Lucky 
Bags of the 1940's, with the exception of 1942, 1948-A 
and 1949, increased the size of their books to a very 
large 11X14, a size no longer financially possible for a 
yearbook staff on a limited budget. 

One of the better Lucky Bags was printed in 1945, a 
tremendously large and bulky book, called the "Centen- 
nial Edition." It contained 28 pages of pictures and 
drawings depicting the Naval Academy 100 years be- 
fore. It was'also the first book to divide the biographies 
into companies. The photographs in this book were 
perhaps better than they had ever been, showing the 
long strides toward perfection that photography was 
taking. 

Nineteen forty-nine saw the return of the 9X12 size 
book which was to remain standard through 1958. This 
year also saw the start of the very formal book. All the 
sections were in order, parts of sections were never 
intermingled. Their formality nearly approached bore- 
dom in some editions though this same formality was 
one of the prime reasons the New York Employing 
Printers Association awarded the certificate of special 
merit to the 1955 Lucky Bag. 



Full use of the quarter, half, and three-quarter cut 
tip-in first appeared in the 1951 edition in the Yard 
section. Here buildings were shown on a full page and 
the cut tip-in faced each of these pages and contained 
a write-up of the man for whom the building was 
named. Much use of copy separated by three periods 
was used in the biography section of this book. Not a 
good practice and extremely tiring to the eye, it was 
never used again. 

The 1954 book, almost a duplicate of that of 1953, had 
the most unique cover ever to appear on a Lucky Bag. 
It was colored gray with a slide rule, electrical circuit, 
the physics equation F = MA, outline of a navy boiler, 
director, and an elongated north point on a compass 
rose all embossed on the front cover in random 
fashion. 

The 1959 Lucky Bag was the first book to be printed in 
size 10X 13, the largest book produced since the 11X14 
editions of the 1940's. Its biography section was divided, 
for the first time, into States of the Union and its dedi- 
cation to the United States Senate was followed up by 
placing each Senator's picture on the first page of that 
particular State's section. Never before had their been 
a picture of anyone but a graduating midshipman in 
the biography section. 

From the first days of the Lucky Bag in 1894 until the 
present day's 1959 edition, staffs have made use of the 
ever-increasing new technological ideas in the fields of 
printing, engraving, and photography to produce bet- 
ter and better Lucky Bags. The task of compiling a 
yearbook is not an easy one and it requires many long 
hours of work by many talented people. Some staffs 
have been more gifted than others, for many editions 
reveal only too well work that was done by too few, too 
hurriedly. Others clearly point out the fact that in 
some classes there were near-professional writers and 
photographers. Some staffs have been more fortunate 
than others in that due to the times they have had a 
greater amount of material upon which to base their 
books than others. Lucky Bags have been unique in 
that themes have primarily evolved about historical 
events. Years following wars and deeds of great naval 
men have, therefore, been years in which staffs have 
profited. Through the years paper has improved, covers 
have become stronger, ink is better, color processes 
have improved and type is easier to read. But the basic 
content and the development of ideas can never change 
despite the modern methods of printing. Some of the 
ideas and themes which appeared in Lucky Bags at the 
turn of the century far outshine many of those in the 
1950's.

there is nothing quite like a leave for a mid . • . 





The first indication that a leave is about to begin: The Bay Bridge 



New York City's famed skyline is a welcome sight to a tired midshipman

gone down to the sea in ships 





A long way from USNA, the Truchas Peaks of New Mexico seem to open their Grandfather Mountain in Western North Carolina is truly a mark of beauty to 

arms to the returning mid a true Southerner

We 



E are proud as punch of our new Bennie . . . the Oscar 
of the printing industry. This award statuette was presented 
to Wm. J. Keller Inc. by a jury of professional printers at the 
annual convention of the Printing Industries of America, 
meeting in Dallas. 

The fact that Keller wins occasional prizes is not, how- 
ever, important. What is important to us is the continuing 
loyalty of our customers, for whom we keep plugging away 
with yearbook service, design and artwork . . . plus the really 
superior printing process of Velvatone.

Invitation to sudden destruction 




...even this tiny glow will actuate the super-sensitive, infra-red controls 
of the deadly Sidewinder missile. 



Sidewinder, streaking through midnight skies on its mission of air-to-air 
defense, is but one dramatic example of Philco leadership in advanced infra- 
red technology. Conceived by the Naval Ordnance Test Station at China 
Lake . . . developed by Navy and Philco scientists . . . engineered and pro- 
duced by Philco, the Sidewinder is a result of close weapons systems 
development coordination. 

In the forefront of infra-red research and solid state physics, Philco is 
pioneering detectors which cover the entire IR spectrum including; prox- 
imity warning indicators, advanced photographic (black light) techniques, 
high precision industrial IR electronics, search gear and fire warning systems.

Scheduled to be ready for sailing by 
1960, the first nuclear-powered mer- 
chant vessel will help to assess the 
economic feasibility of nuclear power 
as a means of propelling merchant 
ships . . . another big step toward put- 
ting the power of the atom to work 
constructively and economically. De- 
signed to steam for 350,000 miles — 
about 3V2 years — on a single loading 
of nuclear fuel, the single screw ship 
will have a capacity of 9,000 to 10,000 
deadweight tons of cargo plus 60 
passengers.

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY 





SUCCESSFUL FIRING of Polaris missile (shown here 
in inert launching test) over a 1500 mile range will 
depend upon an array of revolutionary equipment. 



SHIPS' INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM, produced 
by Sperry for the Navy, will enable U.S.S. Observation 
Island to pinpoint absolute position at all times without 
reference to radio or radar . . . 




NAVY PREPARES FINAL TESTS 
OF MISSILE LAUNCHING 



M 



U.S.S. Observation Island Gets Navigation Equipment Designed For Atomic Subs 



With the commissioning last December 
of the U.S.S. Observation Island the 
Navy began the final phase in its devel- 
opment of a missile system which many 
believe may be our greatest deterrent to 
aggression. 

Its advantages are obvious. While per- 
manent missile-launching bases can be 
quickly detected, the missile-launching 
atomic submarine changes its position 
constantly, can remain hidden in poten- 
tial trouble areas— and provide a constant 
threat of deadly retaliation, even while 
submerged. 



But while the advantages are obvious 
—so are the difficulties in making such a 
system successful. A missile-launching 
submarine must know its exact position 
at all times — without benefit of such 
standard navigation aids as radar and 
radio. At the moment of launching, the 
missile must be precisely aligned with 
the distant target— the slightest deviations 
would be magnified again and again over 
the 1500-mile range. 

The Ships' Inertial Navigation System 
(sins) aboard the U.S.S. Observation 
Island— and for use on atomic subs— is 

508 



being produced by Sperry to meet these 
exacting requirements. Together with 
other equipment such as navdac, an 
"electronic brain" which collects, ana- 
lyzes and decodes vital navigational data, 
are new developments in automatic steer- 
ing and measurement of ocean currents.

Their theater is the High Seas— from the sky above 
to the depths below. Their mission is to maintain 
the freedom of the seas, allowing the ships of all 
nations to pass upon their lawful occasions. They 
need the finest equipment America can build. 
For the Navy's airmen the Columbus Division of 
NAA has built a weapon system far beyond the ca- 
pabilities of any other navy— the A3J Vigilante- 
fastest, highest-flying attack airplane ever built for 
the Navy. Few land-based airplanes in the world 
can match the Vigilante's speed and performance, 
yet its boundary-layer control system slows it down 



for safe landings on carrier decks. Its uncanny 
accuracy in any weather makes it ideal for pin- 
pointing the targets of limited war— in any kind of 
terrain, striking from any attitude, at any altitude. 
It can also deliver a major blow if need be. 
For the Navy's submariners the Autonetics Division 
of NAA built the Inertial Navigation systems that 
guided USS Nautilus and Skate on their historic 
voyages beneath the Polar ice. Even more advanced 
systems are being built by Autonetics for accurate 
launching of the Polaris missile from the Navy's 
new generation of atom-powered submarines.

NEW VOUGHT CRUSADER FOR FLEET NEXT YEAR! 

Navy orders fourth version of flexible, economical fighter 



For the fourth time in three years, a new Crusader type 
is extending the power of the Fleet. Chance Vought's 
F8U-2N has been ordered by the Navy for delivery next 
year. It will deploy alongside the Navy's swiftest photo- 
planes and two first line day fighters — all Crusaders. 

The F8U-2N is another step in Crusader growth. Speed 
of this newest version has been advanced to near 
Mach 2. It will carry the deadliest air-to-air missiles. 
It is instrumented and radar-equipped for supersonic 



combat in darkness or bad weather. 

This will be a new capability for the Fleet. Yet it is 
being acquired at low risk and cost. The F8U-2N's basic 
design has been proved simple, serviceable and econom- 
ical . . . compiling an enviable performance record in a 
year of foreign duty with two Fleets. 

Again, the growth provisions of the Vought Crusader 
have provided immediate, low-cost upgrading of the 
Fleet's aircraft inventory.

A CONCEPT OF SCIENCE 

Five years ago, The Martin Company con- 
ceived a unique undertaking in the field of 
pure science which grew out of a belief that 
our own and our country's resources in crea- 
tive scientific research must be greatly 
enlarged and cultivated. 

We believed that the country— and the Com- 
pany— that concentrates on short-range ma- 
terial achievements, without a deep concern 
for the creative source of tomorrow's even 
greater achievements, will have no tomorrow. 

It is now three years since that belief motivated 
management's action with the foundation of 
a program in pure research. Known as the 
Research Institute of Advanced Study, RIAS 
is now a substantial organization staffed by 
scientists who are working in many fields, 
including theoretical physics, biochemistry, 
metallurgy and mathematics, without short- 
range applied research requirements. 

Today, the increasing appeals to industry and 
the nation for accelerated activities in basic 
research give the RIAS story a special signifi- 
cance. For creative research in pure science 
is the true life source of our technological 
security — the "seed bed" from which our 
national strength shall continue to grow.

Wherever you go on your first tour of duty 
you're bound to find one or more CREI men 

Throughout the Navy thousands of Electronics men — with 
extra ambition — are suppiementing Navy rating courses 
with CREI technical training. Here are some of the facts: 



In the past years, Capitol Radio Engineering Insti- 
tute has helped thousands of Navy men, including 
all electronic ratings and many commissioned ranks, 
to obtain a high level of supplementary practical 
electronics know-how. Even today, one-third of all 
CREI enrollees are Navy personnel. These men re- 
ceive (by mail from CREI) Navy-recognized elec- 
tronics training — above and beyond the scope of 
rating courses. They pay their own tuition. They 
study during off-duty hours. These men make better 
electronics men — and better Navy men who by their 
interest and advancement are better sold on longer 
Navy careers. 



E. H. Rietzke, founder and president of CREI, was 
himself a Navy Chief Radioman, and was the first 
Chief Instructor at the Bellevue Naval Radio Ma- 
teriel School. 

Many Naval officers recommend CREI training to 
men in their commands. Do you want to know more 
about CREI training and how it can serve the Navy? 
We will be happy to send you a volume of five sample 
lessons, selected from various sections of the course, 
plus full details of the CREI program. This volume 
will give you a picture of the scope of CREI training, 
and assist you in making your own evaluation of our 
courses and methods. No cost or obligation. Please

CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS 






GREETINGS 
from the 
President of the 
Navy Relief Society 



In the fifty-four years since the founding of the Navy Relief Society, the United States 
Navy has seen tremendous, almost fantastic changes wrought by the progress of science 
and technology. The Navy today is armed with modern weapons of the most advanced 
design, and in the years ahead it will have weapons systems of unprecedented mobility 
and lethal power. 

As we move forward into an age of even greater material progress, we must never 
forget the vital part, the transcendent part, which must still be played by the individual 
man. His fortitude, his perseverance, his courage, his overall capability is, and ever will 
remain, the decisive factor in any struggle, cold or hot. 

Science and social progress have done much to improve the lot of mankind on earth, 
but the adversities and vicissitudes of life remain. We can, by our own efforts, do much to 
lighten these burdens, and that is why we have, and take great pride in, our own Navy 
Relief Society. It is a concrete expression of the brotherhood of the naval service. It exem- 
plifies the mutual support and common concern that we have for each other. It is tangible 
evidence of those qualities which are characteristic of our Navy and our Marine Corps, the 
qualities of mutual self-help, of alertness to need, and of the ability and willingness to do 
something about it. 

Ever since its inception, the Society has provided timely, understanding, and construc- 
tive help in personal and family emergencies which are encountered by our service per- 
sonnel. Its services have expanded through the years both in the scale of its operations 
and the scope of its activities. It offers both financial assistance when needed, and coun- 
selling service where the problem is one of advice or moral support. Last year, the Society 
assisted in 130,964 cases. It provided $496,250 in outright grants, $4,562,986 in loans with- 
out interest. It also provides visiting nurse service, operates Thrift Shops, supports chil- 
dren's nurseries or waiting rooms, and supplies layettes for new babies who otherwise 
would be without them. 

Although there are, of necessity, nucleus employed staffs in the larger Auxiliaries, the 
principal part of the work is carried on by our Navy and Marine wives who unselfishly 
and generously give their time to this splendid and very necessary work. 

As Chief of Naval Operations, as well as President of the Navy Relief Society, I am 
grateful to all friends of the Navy for their continued support and assistance. 

Sincerely yours, 




Arleigh Burke

LET'S COUNT BACK FROM THE COUNTDOWN 



This is the "moment of truth." This 
is the countdown. A satellite will 
soar into the stratosphere. A rocket 
will hit or encircle the moon. 

But let's count back from the count- 
down. 

Let's count the grueling tests, the 
check-outs. Let's count the months of 
manufacturing, the skill, precision and 
care that went into each of the thou- 
sands of parts. 

Let's count the brain-power, the en- 
gineering talents of the brilliant men 
at work . . . the modifications and re- 
finements in design . . . the "break- 
throughs" that had to be made. 

Let's count all the way back to the 
first gleam of concept in a scientist's 
probing, inventive mind. 

And let's not forget to count the ad- 
ministrative control, the guidance, the 
coordination and planning that go 
into these complex projects. 

There's a new name for it 

Such involved systems of engineering 
and automation demand an entirely 



new concept of planning, research, 
specialized administration and techni- 
cal coordination. It is called "system 
management." It places complete re- 
sponsibility for every phase of a giant 
project in the hands of one company 
or group of companies. 

It takes tremendous resources. In 
manpower. In administrative capacity. 
In facilities. And that is why ITT has 
been selected for projects of the high- 
est importance. The ITT System oper- 
ates and maintains the DEW Line, 
and is managing the production of a 
new world-wide electronic control sys- 
tem ingeniously conceived by the Stra- 
tegic Air Command for its operations. 

And ITT is deep in many other vi- 
tal projects. 

In industry, too, there are "countdowns" 

Large industrial projects, too, need 
system management. Vast communi- 
cation networks, for instance . . . link- 
ing continents through "over-the- 
horizon" microwave . . . world-wide air- 
navigation systems... the development 



of automation in industrial processes. 

System management has great po- 
tential. And ITT is equipped to put it 
to work ... to assume full responsi- 
bility for complete system manage- 
ment projects anywhere in the free 
world. This includes not only basic 
concept, engineering and manufacture 
. . . but also installation, testing, oper- 
ation and maintenance. 

You can count on ITT . . . from con- 
cept to countdown.

Straight UP, AROUND and straight DOWN 



A jet airplane has successfully demonstrated its ability to rise 
straight up in a conventional horizontal attitude, fly around an 
airport traffic pattern and return to the starting point to hover 
and land vertically. 

The Bell X-14 can thus report its mission accomplished. It has 
proved that the minimum take-off requirements of a helicopter 
can be combined successfully with the high-speed performance 
of jet aircraft. 

An operational military airplane embodying this Bell-pioneered 
VTOL concept is now in advanced stages of development 
under Air Force contract. Bell engineers foresee the day when 
the same principle will be applied to both military and commercial 
jet aircraft of all sizes.

The Nomad — It-door 6-passenger — 
one of five new Chevy wagons! 



THE CAR THAT LEADS YOUR 
KIND OF LIFE-59 CHEVROLET! 



Chevy's new Slimline design is right in step with your 
desire for style that reflects function as well as good 
form. You couldn't ask for a more stunning assortment of 
wagons. Yet every one of them is so beautifully practical ! 
They offer more comfort, more economy — more of 
everything you want in a car. 



Just look at the practical way the '59 Chevy 
meets the needs of today's on-the-go family. 
Its famous Body by Fisher is roomier, with 
vast new areas of visibility. The ride is 
smoother, handling is easier. Chevy's new 
finish keeps its shine for as long as three years 
without waxing. There's a peppery new 6 that 
gets up to 10% more miles per gallon — plus 



vim-packed V8's. And look at the beautiful 
variety of versatile Chevrolet station wagons 
for '59. All five — 2- or 4-door, 6- or 9-pas- 
senger models — offer the last word in station 
wagon practicality. Handy around the home- 
stead. Great for trips. Take the whole family 
along to look 'em over! . . . Chevrolet Division 
of General Motors, Detroit 2, Michigan. 




The Brookwood — 2-door 6-passenger. Also a Indoor Brookwood. 




What America wants, 
America gets in a Chevy! 




The Kingswood — lt-door 9-passenger with new rear-facing third seat. 



DOCTOR OF SHIPS 




Rick Bruhn specializes in preventive "medicine." 
Rick is the Mobil marine engineer in Hong 

Kong. His counterparts work in every major 

Free World port — more than 400. 

As you trust the skill, training and experience 

of your doctor, so do the men who know marine 

machinery trust the Rick Bruhns to diagnose 

their ships' needs and prescribe the right fuels 

and lubricants. 

Mobil know-how created the first and most 



comprehensive service of this kind. It helps 
make sure that goods you send or receive move 
without delay — that as a passenger you arrive 
and depart on schedule — that every voyage is a 
Bon Voyage. 

This is the master's touch in oil — servicing the 
world's mightiest warship, the world's fastest 
boat, every flagship of every leading ship line, 
two-fifths of all the world's freighters as well as 
the first atomic-powered submarine.

Cuff links contribute much to the smartly

For years Navy men have worn Krementz qual-

The Krementz process of plating with a heavy 
overlay of genuine 14 Kt. gold makes this finer 
jewelry look richer and wear longer.

INTERLUX FINISHES 

. . . stay beautiful 

Interlux Finishes have everything ... beauty, 

lasting protection, ease of application and 

extreme durability. Formulated for marine 

use, they resist wear and weather and can 

be scrubbed as clean as a porcelain dish. 

The yachtsman who finds them so satisfactory 

for his topsides, decks, spars, bright work and 

interiors, will also find them outstanding for use in bathrooms and 

kitchens and on woodwork, porch floors and furniture.

WINCHESTER 



A lifetime of hunting opportunities awaits you. 
Wherever you're stationed you'll find game— corn 
fed pheasants one year, perhaps Bengal tigers the 
next. Make the most of your chances and you'll 
collect thrills and trophies few millionaires can 
match. 

And whatever you're after, be sure to use a 
genuine Winchester. There's a Winchester rifle or 
Winchester shotgun that will make it easier for 
you to take anything from Scottish grouse to a 
charging lion. A Winchester is the choice of sports- 
men wherever there is game to be taken and a 
man to take it. Make a Winchester your choice, too.
